  • Mission:
  • Children’s Hospital’s mission is to provide comprehensive pediatric healthcare, which recognizes the special needs of children, through excellence and continuous improvement of patient care, education, research, child advocacy, and management.

  • Overview:
  • Children's Hospital is a 247-bed medical center serving the entire Gulf South region and caring for children from birth to twenty-one years. The facility includes an 18-bed Pediatric Intensive Care Unit with a 24-hour Regional Transport Team, the only Rehabilitation Unit for children in Louisiana, a 36-bed Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, an 8-bed Spinal Unit, a 29-bed Child and Adolescent Behavioral Health Center, and a 20-bed Cardiac Intensive Care Unit. The hospital has a staff of 1,508 employees, with more than 400 physicians trained in more than 40 subspecialties.

    Children’s Hospital is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit hospital. Our hospital is still Louisiana’s only free-standing, acute care general pediatric hospital, and we maintain a policy of never turning away a child who needs the care we offer. In 2011, Children’s Hospital recorded 194,339 patient visits, with children coming to the hospital from all 64 parishes in Louisiana, 44 states and two foreign countries. In all, the hospital provided care to 59,403 children last year. More than 68% of our young patients were funded through the federal Medicaid program.

    The hospital treats patients in more than 40 specialties, including life-threatening illnesses, routine childhood sicknesses, and preventive care. Throughout its history, Children’s Hospital has served as a teaching hospital where faculty from the Louisiana State University School of Medicine forms a strong pediatric teaching program. The cooperative efforts of the hospital and LSU School of Medicine have brought about the development of many pediatric programs: Allergy, Anesthesiology, Cardiology, Cardiovascular Surgery, Dermatology, Ear, Nose and Throat, Emergency Medicine, Endocrinology, Gastroenterology/Nutrition, Genetics, Infectious Disease, Intensive Care, Nephrology, Neonatology, Neurology, Neurosurgery, Oncology, Ophthalmology, Orthopedics, Pathology, Pediatrics, Plastic Surgery, Psychiatry, Pulmonology, Radiology, Rheumatology, Surgery, and Urology.

    The hospital provides a wide array of community benefits programs to provide access to quality healthcare for many children of low-income families. Last year, the hospital invested more than $15.8 million in these community services. The Children’s Hospital Assistance Plan, or CHAP, provides physician and hospital services at no cost to children whose family income is too high to qualify for Medicaid but whose lack of resources limit their access to quality healthcare. The mobile dental clinic, or “Tooth Bus” program, is a community service providing free dental care to children living in the poorest areas of our community. The Tooth Bus program averages more than 700 patient visits each month. The Audrey Hepburn CARE (Children At Risk Evaluation) Center is a comprehensive forensic medicine center providing pediatric forensic medicine evaluations to aid in the proper recognition, intervention, protection, prevention and care of maltreated children, including cases dealing with physical abuse, neglect and sexual abuse. Last year, our Audrey Hepburn CARE Center evaluated more than 1,000 children who had been abused and/or neglected. Our Child and Adolescent Behavioral Health Center is a 33-bed inpatient psychiatric program that offers acute inpatient treatment in two separate units specifically designed to meet the needs of children ages 8 to 12 years (7-beds) and teens ages 13 to 17 years (26-beds). Children admitted to the Behavioral Health Center are experiencing acute psychiatric and emotional symptoms due to crises or stressful life events. This can include suicidal thoughts or attempts, being abused, death of a family member or friend, school stress, being bullied, or having little or no family support. Last year, we had more than 1,300 patients admitted to the program. The Research Institute for Children at Children’s Hospital is focused on pediatric research in the areas of host-pathogen interactions, kidney disease, and diabetes. Last year, the hospital invested more than $6.2 million from our community benefits in the research institute to help develop new therapeutic agents to treat cancer, autoimmune diseases and AIDS.

  • History:
  • In the late 1940s, thousands of Louisiana children and young adults were affected by a polio epidemic. If they survived the disease, they lived with its crippling effects. Louisiana lagged behind in resources for the state’s handicapped children, and a rehabilitation facility for children with handicaps did not exist. On June 27, 1949, with the help of many community leaders, the Crippled Children’s Hospital Corporation was chartered by the state of Louisiana as a nonprofit organization to provide a home for young children and adolescents to recuperate and reestablish their footing. On March 1, 1955, Crippled Children’s Hospital was dedicated as a 50-bed facility, designed to serve primarily polio victims and physically handicapped children.

    In the early 1970’s a carefully conducted study revealed that our state needed a full service general pediatric hospital and referral center for children with special health problems. To meet this need, the Board of Trustees began planning an expansion to care for sick, injured and chronically ill children. Upon completion of construction, the hospital was formally dedicated in 1976 as Louisiana’s first full service general pediatric hospital. The name was changed to Children’s Hospital.

    In 1985, Children’s Hospital completed a major construction and renovation project that included two new floors, a new Emergency Care Center, a Neonatal Intensive Care, a Radiology Department, expansions of the Ambulatory Care Center, first floor, and clinical laboratories. Today, Children's Hospital is a 247-bed medical center serving the entire Gulf South region and caring for children from birth to twenty-one years.
