  • A message from Warner Thomas, president and CEO of Ochsner Health: "Like many of you, I’ve been troubled over the past week with some incredibly sad and disturbing realities. It’s hard to accept that our country – the one that has demonstrated so much unity in serving our diverse communities during COVID-19 – can remain so divided. While this is a time for mourning and for necessary reflection on the inequalities that continue to plague our nation – it is also a time for change."

  • Now more than ever we celebrate the compassion and dedication our healthcare heroes. Happy Nurse's Week! We appreciate all that you do each and every day to care for our community.
