Behind the Scenes Tour
Join Baton Rouge General’s Foundation for a free “behind-the-scenes”
tour of the hospital. The tour gives visitors an inside view of our community
hospital, with stops on several units, including the Pennington Cancer
Center, the Birth Center, and our Regional Burn Center.
Along the way, staff members discuss state-of-the-art technology, and
patients and family members share personal stories about their experience
at Baton Rouge General.
If you would like to attend one of our tours, contact Kelli Rogers, Manager
of Annual Giving, at (225) 763-4831 or
*Reservations are required.
Baton Rouge General is fortunate to have the support of an outstanding
volunteer staff who contribute their time and talents for the benefit
of our hospital. Without them, we could not fulfill our mission of caring
for our community. Foundation volunteers help with numerous events and
campaigns, including coordination, logistics, promotion, recruiting and
assisting staff in various capacities.

LifeShare is the sole provider of blood services for Baton Rouge General and we
encourage you to consider donating through this amazing organization.
As the home of South Louisiana's only Burn Center, where many burn
patients require large amounts of blood, LifeShare's supply is critical
to the lives of many of our patients. And unlike other blood service organizations,
100% of LifeShare's collection goes to support people right here in
our own community.
You can donate blood at LifeShare's office, located at 3849 North Boulevard,
or request them to come to you.
To schedule a blood drive with LifeShare for your work, church or other
organization or to learn more about donating, please call (225) 383-7728 or email
