The partnership will create greater opportunity for alignment to start new programs and the expansion of services in the region. The two organizations are working toward the finalization of many initiatives that will allow for better healthcare for the patients of Northeast Louisiana.

         “We are proud to have Glenwood Regional Medical Center as a partner in the Ochsner Health Network (OHN),” said Warner Thomas, President and CEO, Ochsner Health System.  “To ensure that the highest quality healthcare is maintained across our state, Ochsner has taken the proactive step to build these partnerships with the highest quality organizations in each market statewide. Together, and with our other OHN members, we will share best practices and resources to expand our ability to deliver additional services to both patients and physicians across Louisiana and the region.”

         The affiliation is a strategic partnership representative of strengths of both organizations and the commitment to the region we serve. Under the agreement, each organization will retain its identity and operational oversight.
