Seventy-five years ago, Dr. Alton Ochsner and four colleagues opened New Orleans’ first multi-specialty group practice.
Since 1942, our vision to develop a healthcare model that ensured top quality, comprehensive care for patients in south Louisiana along with our commitment to prioritizing patients remains. Ochsner has been a leader on the forefront of clinical research and innovation – linking cigarette smoking to lung cancer decades ago, to now arming patients with the latest wearable technology to manage chronic conditions.
We are proud of our accomplishments and look forward to shaping the future as a national and global healthcare destination.
– Warner Thomas, President and CEO, Ochsner Health System
