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

Newcomers will be pleased to learn that the city is home to a number of first-class healthcare facilities that compete to provide excellent care to patients. That said, as is the case throughout the USA, treatment is expensive and it's best to invest in a comprehensive health insurance plan. If possible, 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 the downtown 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
