About LCMC Health

We believe a hospital should actually be hospitable

We’re a New Orleans-based, non-profit health system on a mission: to provide the best possible care for every person and parish in Louisiana and beyond, and to put a little more heart and soul into healthcare along the way. And that means we do things a little differently around here.

Treating people like family is the LCMC Health way, and it always has been. Founded by Louisiana’s first freestanding children’s hospital, we’ve grown into a healthcare system that’s built to serve the unique needs of our communities and families across New Orleans, the Gulf Coast and beyond.

We believe in treating the whole patient, not just the condition. When you visit an LCMC Health facility, you will get the care that is best for you and your family because we believe that shared beliefs and positive outlooks are what drive our exceptional care.

This is LCMC Health.
