Healthcare in New Orleans includes a combination of hospitals, clinics, and other organization for the residents of New Orleans, Louisiana.


L’Hospital des Pauvres de la Charite was opened in 1736 as a charitable institution and was a modest operation then located on the corner of Chartres and Bienville streets. This institution later evolved into Charity Hospital, located on Tulane Avenue, which was constructed in 1939; at the time, it was the second largest hospital in the United States. Charity Hospital was closed in 2005 after significant damage was caused by Hurricane Katrina.[1] University Medical Center New Orleans was opened in 2015 as a partial replacement for Charity Hospital and other closed or deprecated institutions within the city.[2]
