Welcome to a New Era of Healthcare in New Orleans!

Our multidisciplinary, team-oriented approach is just one reason our patients achieve the highest quality of life possible. As a Long Term Acute Care Hospital, our patients typically stay for 2-3 weeks. This gives us time to get to know each patient as a person, allowing us to provide the individualized attention needed for successful outcomes. We become like family, and many of our patients and their families stop by just to say hello long after their hospital stay is over!

Our patients can be admitted from another hospital, from a nursing home, or directly from home. Call our admissions office at 504-780-3033 with any questions about our admissions process.
