Established in 1996, the Children's Hospital of LSU Health Sciences Center at Shreveport is a primary and tertiary acute care facility dedicated to the health and well-being of children in the Ark-La-Tex area. The Children's Hospital offers unique health care opportunities that can only be provided by a university hospital. Physically located within LSU Medical Center, the Children's Hospital is designated a "hospital within a hospital." The Children's Hospital serves as the pediatric teaching hospital of LSU Health Sciences Center School of Medicine at Shreveport. The Children's Hospital is staffed by physicians with special training and skills in the management of complicated acute and chronic pediatric illnesses. Over 60 full-time faculty members, plus over 30 resident doctors care for our pediatric patients.
As a "hospital within a hospital," the Children's Hospital is able to share the resources of the University Hospital, but at the same time, maintain a friendly, caring environment for our patients and their families. The Children's Hospital has a 33-bed infant and children's ward, a newly renovated 8-bed pediatric intensive care unit, a 40-bed neonatal intensive care unit and a newborn nursery.
The Children's Hospital has access to a Positron Emission Tomography Center, a Pediatric Trauma Center and the LSU Health Shreveport Regional Burn Center. The Children's Hospital is also affiliated with St. Jude Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee, bringing pediatric oncology services to the children in the Ark-La-Tex area. The Children's Hospital was built 15 years ago with the belief that we could make a difference in our community.
