Economic Impact of Physicians in Louisiana
Beyond their role in safeguarding the health of our communities, physicians in Louisiana are a major driver of the state economy, spurring economic growth and creating jobs across all industries.
Louisiana physicians hire locally, buy locally and support the local economy. Through the creation of jobs with strong wages and benefits paid to workers across the state, physicians empower a high-quality, sustainable workforce that generates state and local tax revenue for community investments. Physicians’ economic output—the value of the goods and services provided—helps other businesses grow through their own purchasing and through the purchasing of their employees. Each dollar in direct output applied to physician services supports $1.85 in economic activity in Louisiana, and physician-driven economic activity is greater than legal services, home health care, higher education, and nursing home and residential care.

Be Prepared - Emergency & Disaster Preparedness
Being prepared for emergencies is crucial at home, school, work and in your community. Disaster can strike quickly and without warning. It can force you to evacuate your neighborhood, workplace or school or can confine you to your home. What would you do if basic services - water, gas, electricity or telephones - were cut off? Local officials and relief workers will be on the scene after a disaster, but they cannot reach everyone right away. The best way to make you and your family safer is to be prepared before disaster strikes. LEARN MORE
