LWH Physicians Share Excitement for the Future

“I’ve been practicing medicine for over four decades. For the growth we expect to see over the next decade, it will be a marathon and not a sprint. Our partnership with Ochsner is a wise leap forward in the right direction. It means more value and a better experience for the women we have the honor of serving.”

– Michael Perniciaro, M.D., President and Chairman-elect, LWH

“Our patients will continue to receive same high quality, personalized care as we have always provided,” said Frank Breaux, M.D., who worked with his partners to form LWH in 1997. “The biggest change is that we will work directly with Ochsner to bring more advanced information technology to our patients.”

– Frank Breaux, M.D., Chairman Emeritus, LWH

“We love our patients. We want to continually give them the best care and the best experience possible. We chose a partner who shares our commitment to women’s healthcare. Ochsner offers advanced health information technology that delivers results for the patient and tools that will make us more effective as physicians. Together, we will grow and continue to innovate. I am excited about the possibilities.”

– Rebecca Boudreaux, M.D., Board member, LWH

“We started talking with Ochsner about the possibilities of sharing information technology. As I got to know Dr. Morris, it was clear that the real potential is for us to be fully partnered and work together for advances in obstetrics and gynecology that will improve patient outcomes and reduce costs. We were on the same page from the start, and now we’re on the same team.”

– O’Neil “Jay” Parenton, M.D., Finance Chair, LWH
