Celebrating 100 Years of Commitment to the Community

2023 marks the 100th anniversary of Our Lady of the Lake Health. Established in 1923 in the river town of Baton Rouge, Our Lady of the Lake began a legacy of healing for the families of this region. Today, Our Lady of the Lake Health is the premier provider of healthcare offering comprehensive world-class care in Greater Baton Rouge and surrounding parishes. We remain committed to the mission and vision of our founders, the Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady, set forth more than 100 years ago. On November 3, 2023, we celebrated our commitment to the community with a 100th Anniversary Mass celebrated by Most Reverend Michael G. Duca, Bishop of Baton Rouge.
