2018 - University Health System Transitions

University Health System was transitioned to a new entity, Ochsner LSU Health System of North Louisiana, which is jointly owned by Ochsner Health System and LSU. While under BRF ownership and operation, the two former state teaching hospitals accomplished new quality rankings, improved the care offered to its patients and greatly increased operational efficiencies. The turnaround of the hospitals was accomplished by volunteer boards and a dedicated leadership team. With the community’s support, more than 3,200 jobs were saved and the region’s safety net health system was preserved.
