In recent years, New Orleans has a built a reputation for itself as a healthcare hub in America's South. The healthcare landscape of NOLA is constantly evolving and these developments have gone hand in hand with innovation in the city’s biotech industry.

Newcomers to the Crescent City will be pleased to learn that it is home to a number of first-class healthcare systems that compete to provide excellent care to patients. That said, as is the case throughout the USA, to access the best medical care, residents need to be in possession of a comprehensive private health insurance plan, which doesn’t come cheap. Therefore those moving to New Orleans for work should try to negotiate a healthcare allowance into their employment package.

Some of the most prominent hospitals can be found in downtown NOLA’s Bio District, including the University Medical Centre and Tulane Medical Center. Below you’ll find our list of some of the most well established medical facilities in New Orleans
