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.

Mission: Health, care, and education beyond extraordinary.

Vision: Creating a culture of wellness.

Values: We bring heart and soul. We're in it together. We give a little extra.

We offer eight hospital locations: Children’s Hospital, East Jefferson General Hospital, New Orleans East Hospital, Touro, University Medical Center New Orleans, West Jefferson Medical Center, Lakeview Hospital, and Lakeside Hospital. We also deliver world-class care close to home through a network of urgent care centers across the greater New Orleans area in addition to our physician practices. With over 2,800 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.
