Ochsner Medical Center — Baton Rouge is part of the award-winning Ochsner Medical System. The Baton Rouge location offers private rooms, 24-hour emergency care and a newly renovated Family Birthing Center that has six labor and delivery rooms, birthing tubs, cesarean rooms and a level III neonatal intensive care unit.

The medical center has advanced specialty care — such as open-heart surgery and orthopedic procedures — and was the first in the region to offer robot-assisted surgery and high definition endoscopy. The medical center also offers extended hours urgent care in two locations — no appointment necessary.

With 151 beds, 13 health centers and more than 300 physicians, the medical center has primary care physicians, pediatricians and specialists that can offer same-day appointments.

The medical center received the Gold Level Hospital Quality Award from the Louisiana Health Care Review and is the only fully integrated multi-specialty group practice in Baton Rouge to include a hospital facility.
