Meeting Your Needs During Medical Emergencies

Our award-winning emergency departments across our health system in Louisiana and Mississippi provide a complete range of emergency medical and surgical services, and we’re ready to meet the needs of heart attack patients, stroke victims, and other critically ill or injured patients. Our emergency rooms are staffed with Fellowship-trained emergency medicine physicians dedicated to providing complete, coordinated care.

Emergency Pediatric Care

Louisiana families can count on our network of care to provide the highest quality, family-centered urgent and emergent care. We meet the unique needs of children and families during medical emergencies, providing neonatal and pediatric emergency, critical and intensive care at three different hospitals around the state. Our neonatal and pediatric transport teams are certified, trained and equipped to handle the most critical transports statewide, including options for whole-body cooling, high-frequency ventilation and inhaled nitric oxide, 24/7.


Before Coming to the Emergency Room

Before you leave to come to the emergency room, be sure to bring a list of all medications you are taking as well as a list of any chronic conditions you may have, recent operations and any allergies. It is also helpful to the medical care team if you can provide a copy of recent lab or test results. Providing such information may help to reduce both the cost and waiting time associated with your emergency department visit. If you use MyChart your records will be at our providers’ fingertips.
