LSU Health Shreveport: Heartbeat of the City

It’s a place many of us pass by from time to time and probably think we know.

But there’s a lot that goes on at LSU Health Shreveport that most of us never thought about.  For instance, the hospital has the only Level One Trauma Center within a 200 mile radius.

It’s also the place where students go to learn from some of the best doctors in the world, providing top-notch health care to heal the sick.

But the hospital is doing all this while fighting a financial battle with Baton Rouge.

“We don’t look at it as being, well gee, someone gave us this and it’s all over. It’s going to be how do we try to solve the problem recognizing that we’re going to have look at a lot of different options but in the end, trying to preserve the mission,” says Dr. Hugh Mighty, Chancellor of Clinical Affairs.

In this special, we’ll take you behind the scenes for a look at LSU Health — the heartbeat of the city.
