About New Orleans

"Laissez les bon temps roulez!”

Jackson SquareSituated on the Mississippi River 40 miles from the Gulf of Mexico, New Orleans is a unique city bursting with history, culture, and opportunity. Though Hurricanes Katrina and Rita dealt a devastating blow to the Gulf Coast region and its healthcare infrastructure in 2005, the city of New Orleans is on the rebound. Newly opened businesses continue to flourish and tremendous opportunity awaits those who participate in the recovery effort. Federal, state, and local officials are working together to build brand new healthcare facilities, ensuring the city’s continued status as a regional magnet for medical treatment and research. In the interim, a number of local hospitals and clinics have re-opened to provide patient care and teaching services.
