About Woman’s Hospital

Woman’s is the nation’s only freestanding, private, not-for-profit, specialty hospital for women and infants. 

We are the 17th-largest childbirth service in the United States and the largest in birthing and neonatal intensive care hospital in Louisiana, and we’ve built a reputation of trust among generations of families for the experience we provide and our expertise in caring for women and infants. 

When Babies Need Extra Care

At Woman’s, 90% of births are amazing events where new moms go home with a healthy newborn.  But for the other 10%, we are tackling incredibly complex issues to keep pregnancy and newborns the best chance at a healthy future. That includes caring for the smallest and most fragile babies from across the state in our Level III neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). See how we care for difficult pregnancies and premature babies in Sarah’s and Owen’s story »

Keeping Women Healthy

Annually, more than 4,000 women are screened on our mammography coaches throughout Louisiana. We work to find cancers at their earliest stages when treatment is most successful and our survival rates are some of the best in the country. Watch how Julie’s visit to the Mammo Coach saved her life »
