A Legacy of Caring

Baton Rouge General is unique. It is the city’s first full-service hospital and has been providing for the healthcare needs of our community for more than a century. Our legacy is one of compassion and caring, innovation and leadership. Without question, you'll find some of the best medical technology available at Baton Rouge General, but it's the attention to detail and genuine kindness of our staff that people remember most.

Our hospital is a regional leader in primary care and specialty programs offered on two campuses, Bluebonnet and Mid City. With a staff of 800 highly skilled physicians and 3,500 employees, we work as a team to create exceptional experiences --- one patient at a time.

Patients Come First at Baton Rouge General

Baton Rouge General recognizes that being treated close to home and having the support of family and friends is an important part of healing and recovery. Therefore, we offer amenities that make your stay as comfortable as possible.

This includes valet parking, flexible visiting hours, and interpreting services for non-English speaking patients. To address patients’ emotional well-being, we provide 24-hour pastoral care to patients of all faiths, and our Arts in Medicine program promotes healing through music and the arts.

We also offer a wide array of dining options in our cafeteria and coffee shops, as well as shopping opportunities at our Gift Tree. We have a remarkable staff of volunteers who support our staff and help our patients and visitors with directions, information, and any other assistance they might need.
