Our Lady of the Lake Children's Health

Children’s Health

Louisiana’s Largest Pediatric Network

We are a collaborative, coordinated and child-focused statewide health network that provides patients with more access to physicians and providers specially trained to care for children. Our goal is to make pediatric care easier for you and your child and to work together to create healthy habits that last a lifetime.

Together, Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Health in Greater Baton Rouge and Our Lady of Lourdes Children’s Health in Lafayette, along with pediatric services in Northeast Louisiana and the Northshore area, are Louisiana’s largest pediatric network, and that makes a difference. If your child ever needs to see a pediatric specialist, your primary care pediatrician can refer you to a specialist in our network.

Choosing a primary care provider in our Children’s Health network means your child will have access to the best pediatric care available. Our network is connected by one integrated electronic medical record, which means your child’s medical care is collaborative and seamless.

With more than 300 pediatric providers and specialists across Louisiana, our integrated Children’s Health network means exceptional care for your exceptional child is never far away. From well checks to complex medical care, we serve Louisiana’s children both near and far. You will find the care they need, when they need it and where it’s most convenient.

Pediatric Care When and Where You Need It

Kids get sick at some unexpected times … weekends, holidays, the middle of the night. As a patient of our Children's Health network, you can ask to see our first available provider virtually, without having to come into a clinic.
