AboutLCMC HealthWe’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. 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.
