Children’s Hospital is a 247-bed, not-for-profit academic pediatric medical center offering a comprehensive range of healthcare services, including preventive care, routine childhood treatments and lifesaving care from our specialists. With over 40 pediatric specialties and more than 100 subspecialists, it is the only free-standing, full-service hospital exclusively for children in Louisiana and the Gulf South.

Critical care is provided in the hospital’s 36-bed Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), 18-bed Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU), and 20-bed Cardiac Intensive Care Unit (CICU), the only one dedicated entirely to the care of cardiac patients from birth to adulthood in Louisiana.

With the largest number of specialists dedicated to treating children in the state, Children’s Hospital offers services so specialized, no other facility can claim them. Last year, Children’s Hospital cared for children from all 64 parishes in Louisiana, 43 states and 9 countries.
