Celebrating extraordinary care for kids on the Northshore

Have you heard the exciting news?

North Oaks Health System and Children's Hospital New Orleans are working together to expand access to pediatric services and improve health outcomes for Northshore children and families!

Children's Hospital New Orleans has delivered expert healthcare for children across Louisiana and the Gulf South for more than 65 years. Children's Hospital New Orleans provides the highest level of pediatric care in the state, backed by more than 600 pediatric-trained providers and partnerships with LSU Health New Orleans and Tulane University School of Medicine. Children's Hospital also operates ambulatory clinics across Louisiana and the Gulf South, including 12 primary care clinics and nine specialty clinics from Lake Charles to Bay St. Louis, Mississippi.

Bringing Specialized Care for Children Closer to Home for Families

Together, we plan to build upon services already provided by Children's Hospital at North Oaks Medical Center for our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and Pediatric Unit:

  • Neonatology
  • Pediatric Hospitalists
  • Pediatric Cardiology

Moving ahead, we'll continue to collaborate and explore opportunities to enhance care for children by:

  • adding additional pediatric subspecialists
  • developing new pediatric services
