Rise To The Occasion

More than an uplifting tagline, RISE is a mantra. For our hospital. For our staff. Rising to meet the needs of the community - the very foundation on which Baton Rouge General was built.

This campaign is the next step in our call to rise to the occasion at hand and meet the needs of the people who call Baton Rouge home. Through new equipment, facilities and renovations that expand our volume of care, we are taking care of our whole community; and with your help, we can elevate that care to new heights.

Give today, and together we'll rise.

Areas Of Focus

From life-saving cancer equipment and groundbreaking burn care to a new neighborhood hospital and everyday outpatient needs, we’re redefining what it means to care for our community. For more than 100 years, we’ve assumed this responsibility; and with your help, together we’ll rise.


Emergency Care

In the early 1900s, a train derailment in downtown Baton Rouge required an unprecedented level of response. Dr. T.P. Singletary was there to rise to the occasion, and out of that emergency, Baton Rouge General was born. Every day since we have risen to meet the critical needs of our community. With your support, we are expanding our capacity for care through the addition of a neighborhood hospital in Ascension. We are broadening our reach to service this growing community of 125,000 so that when they need us for critical care, we will be there.

Give today, and together we’ll rise.

"Baton Rouge General has a very special place in our hearts - it's where miracles, hope, and medicine collide..." - Jessica, ICU Patient

As Baton Rouge was emerging and responding to the needs of the community, the need for specialized burn care was clear. Baton Rouge General was there to rise to the occasion, opening our Regional Burn Center in 1970. Today, it is the region’s only verified burn center, and we have a responsibility to ensure that the quantity and quality of care lives up to that distinction.

With your support, renovations to our Regional Burn Center will enable us to continue caring for patients at an even greater level. The new center includes more beds to increase capacity and a rooftop therapy garden, offering burn survivors a safe and comfortable way to ease back into the world around them.
