Baton Rouge’s Top Hospital

Restoring and preserving health

Since opening our doors in 1900, Baton Rouge General has been a part of many of our community's groundbreaking milestones in healthcare. Our hospital was the site of the first ever heart surgery in Baton Rouge, we created the very first diabetes program, and we opened the first burn center and chemical dependency facilities in the state. Through historic changes in medicine, extraordinary developments in equipment and technology, and momentous shifts in demographics and community needs, Baton Rouge General has remained at the forefront of patient care.

Comprehensive Healthcare Services

We remain committed to serving the people of Baton Rouge. With 588 licensed beds between two campuses, our hospitals offer care from the neonatal intensive care unit to hospice. From our acclaimed Regional Burn Center, to our award-winning cancer program and heart services, our experienced team of professionals is here to get you healthier.
