Ochsner Hospital for Children, among the top ranked hospitals in the nation for pediatric cardiology and congenital heart surgery, recently performed groundbreaking procedures to treat severe heart failure in a child.
Recent pediatric outcomes for congenital heart patients show the hospital system’s highly specialized surgeons performed significantly better than others in the region -- even when caring for the most complex cases. For the fifth year in a row, Ochsner’s surgical outcomes also continued to exceed national averages.
Delivering quality healthcare close to home is the single most important contribution we make. But there are many other ways we make a positive impact on the communities we serve. Our Obstetrics and Gynecology program is another way we are making a difference.
