For Patients

Our patients, our family

Our goal is the same as yours: making you the healthiest version of you

When you walk through our doors, you’ll notice we do things a little differently. We go the extra mile to make sure our hospitals and clinics feel a little more like home. And when you step into our home, we welcome you into the family.

We know getting and staying healthy takes work. That’s why we’re here to be your partner and empower you to meet your healthcare goals so you and your family can have a better future. Our physicians and nurses work to get to know you and create one-of-a-kind healthcare plans that are best for you and your family. From newborns to seniors, our primary and specialty care services will help keep you on track, no matter where you are in your healthcare journey.

Specialized care for a special you

We celebrate the things that make us different. So much so that we’ve built special programs that allow us to provide custom care to fit your unique needs.

For example, we know how special our seniors are, and they deserve extra-special treatment. That’s why we have the only two hospitals in Louisiana who received the highest accreditation for senior emergency rooms.

Motherhood is also an extraordinary thing, and we understand each pregnancy is different. Our baby experts at our Family Birth Center and Family Birth Place are ready to welcome you in and be here for you from the beginning of your pregnancy to after you bring baby home. Our classes, videos, and resources cover topics from prenatal care and breastfeeding to sibling and grandparenting 101, because we know it takes a village when welcoming a new family member.

And for our moms and newborns that require extra-special care, our Maternal Fetal Medicine and NICU staff will work with you to create a custom-made plan that’s best for you and your baby.

The transition into parenthood brings new concerns and unique needs for you little one, but we’ve got you covered with the first and largest full-scale children’s hospital in the Louisiana and Gulf South. Our staff knows what it’s like to do anything for you kid because we do it every day. From minor boo-boos to specialized care, our in-person and virtual care options will make sure one of our kid-fluent experts is there when you need them.

Our differences bring us closer together

While you’re uniquely you, you’re not alone in your health concerns. Our support groups and health programs give you a community of people you can relate and talk to as you work towards a common goal. These groups offer guidance, education, resources, and friendships, all with dose of love, so you can succeed. From smoking cessation and weight-loss programs to cancer survivor and paralysis support groups, you’ll have a team rooting for you every step of the way.

Healthcare with heart, wherever you are

We love caring for our city and the people who make it great. Our family of hospitals are located throughout the New Orleans area, so we can serve the needs of each community.

While we have deep roots in New Orleans, we know all communities in Southeast LA deserve extra-special care. We’ve expanded our clinics from Alexandria to Houma, bringing our expertly human providers closer to you.

So welcome to the LCMC Health family, let’s be extraordinary together.
