The Spine Hospital of Louisiana is a physician-owned hospital located within The NeuroMedical Center Campus specializing in the surgical and non-surgical care of the spine, brain, and nervous system.

Approximately 3,478 hospitals were rated and The Spine Hospital is one of 266 to receive a top rating from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
