About the Organization
The Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady Health System is the leading health care innovator in Louisiana. We bring together outstanding clinicians, the most advanced technology and leading research to ensure that our patients receive the highest quality and safest care possible. This commitment is grounded in a history that is more than 100 years old, but reflected today by our strategic vision of transforming healthcare through superior performance and excellent patient care.
Our facilities include Our Lady of the Lake Regional Medical Center which is the dominant institution in health care in the Greater Baton Rouge area. Collaborating with Louisiana State University Health Science Center, it is also an academic medical center and the largest private hospital in the state with 856 licensed beds. Designated as a Level 2 Trauma Center, OLOL's emergency and trauma area was recently renovated and expanded. In addition, OLOL operates two nursing homes, and has an affiliated cancer facility adjacent to the main hospital. A state of the art 7-story Heart and Vascular Institute opened in November 2013 and a free-standing Childrens Hospital is expected to open in 2019. St. Elizabeth Hospital, just outside of Baton Rouge in Ascension Parish serves the Gonzales community with a 78-bed hospital. The hospital provides inpatient, outpatient and surgical services.
