LSU Health Sciences Center New Orleans is Louisiana's flagship, largest and most comprehensive academic health sciences center. Through its schools of medicine, dentistry, nursing, allied health professions, public health, and graduate studies, LSU Health New Orleans educates and trains the majority of Louisiana’s health care professionals and research scientists. Its students are primarily Louisiana residents, and by offering a high-quality, affordable education, LSU Health New Orleans is helping to keep Louisiana's best and brightest here at home.

LSU Health faculty practice what they teach. Some patients travel the globe for LSU Health New Orleans expertise, and each year we create healing miracles. Treatment innovations include one of the most successful long-term pediatric weight management programs, the first muscle-sparing breast reconstruction using the patient’s own tissue, as well as groundbreaking work in cancer, laser eye surgery and cochlear implants. LSU Health New Orleans faculty pioneered autologous bone marrow transplants in children and cured the first person in Louisiana of sickle cell anemia by bone marrow transplant.

Home base for outpatient care by LSU Health New Orleans faculty is the LSU Healthcare Network. This multi-specialty physician practice comprises a complete range of medical and surgical specialties. Dental and Allied Health faculty (for example, Physical and Occupational Therapists) also practice in general and specialty clinics incorporated within the schools. The LSU Healthcare Network is also home to the New Orleans Musicians’ Clinic, founded by LSU Health New Orleans in 1998 as one of the first of its kind nationally.

In addition to practicing in Louisiana’s public-private partner hospitals, LSU Health New Orleans faculty take care of patients in every major hospital and clinic in the metropolitan New Orleans area. Many of the treatment successes touted by these facilities are delivered by LSU Health New Orleans faculty or those educated and trained by them.

LSU Health New Orleans is in the vanguard of biosciences research universities in the South and is a recognized worldwide leader in a number of research disciplines. Among its breakthrough discoveries:

  • That second-hand smoke can cause lung cancer in people who have never smoked, leading to the EPA designation of second-hand smoke as a Class A carcinogen.
  • First to link cigarette smoking to hardening of the arteries – the major cause of heart disease.
  • The critical role DHA found in fish oil plays in cell survival, brain function and the development of the nervous system.
  • The first adult heart muscle cells that can be grown continuously in culture, in worldwide demand for their unparalleled value in research of cardiac function and models of heart attack and cancer.

A powerful economic engine, LSU Health New Orleans creates thousands of primary and secondary jobs. LSU Health Sciences Center New Orleans generated $888 million in sales, more than $390 million in earnings and more than 6,900 jobs in the New Orleans Metropolitan Statistical Area in 2013.
