Kenner’s only hospital is Ochsner Medical Center-Kenner, and it is one of the best in Louisiana. Progressive, advanced care in an accessible setting is just one of the reasons why locals come to Ochsner Medical Center for their health-care needs and concerns.
Ochsner Medical Center-Kenner has been recognized as one of the nation’s 100 best hospitals in four specialty areas. HealthGrades ranked the hospital best in critical care, stroke care, lung care and heart care, and the center is Louisiana’s top institution in those areas.
Operated by the Ochsner Health System, the hospital is accompanied by three clinics: Ochsner Health Center-Kenner (West Esplanade Avenue), another on Driftwood Boulevard and Ochsner Women’s Health Center-Kenner. Both health centers are used primarily for outpatient needs, but the Esplanade Avenue center is a heart and vascular institute mixed with other specialities such as endoscopy and neurology. Driftwood Boulevard’s center focuses on primary care and family medicine.
