About LCMC Health

Extra-extraordinary healthcare is here

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 only freestanding children’s hospital, we’ve grown into a healthcare system that’s built to serve the unique needs of our communities and families.

Today, we offer five hospital locations: Children’s Hospital, Touro, University Medical Center New Orleans, New Orleans East Hospital, and West Jefferson Medical Center. We also offer a network of urgent care centers across the greater New Orleans area and beyond. With over 2,000 board-certified physicians specializing in everything from head to toe, our community can count on us to provide the right care, right where they need it.

We’ve got a rich history, but our sights are set on what comes next. We’re committed to leading the way to a healthier future for the Gulf Coast. That’s why we partner with local universities to bring the latest in care to our patients, and to train the next generation of healthcare professionals that will make a difference right here in our communities.
