Every hospital is different, so no two relationships are exactly the same, but here are the themes that run across all of our hospital partnerships.
- Ochsner has a proven track record of successfully partnering with local hospitals. In the last 10 years, seven hospitals have invited Ochsner to partner with them to share our knowledge and expertise and to improve the quality of care at a more affordable cost.
- Since 2007, Ochsner has invested $330 million in local hospital partnerships. Nearly $100 million of this has gone toward much-needed capital investments in facilities, equipment and technology upgrades.
- At these hospitals, quality scores and financial performance have improved, while mortality rates have decreased.
- We have not laid off any staff members at any of our partner hospitals.
To what do we attribute our success? In part, it’s because of our integrated network of hospitals, and employed and community physicians, all of whom are connected and aligned for the benefit of our patients. We also share best practices – our own and those of nationally renowned healthcare organizations – across the system. What’s more, we have recruited some of the best and brightest leaders and managers who have brought their innovative and transformative thinking here to Southeastern Louisiana.
