According to a City of New Orleans press release, Orleans Parish Hospital Service District A (HSD) signed a non-binding Letter of Intent with Louisiana Childrens Medical Center Health System (LCMC) as a first step toward LCMC operating the New Orleans East Hospital.
The 80-bed acute care hospital is currently under construction, having been closed since Hurricane Katrina. The hospital site remained vacant with no plans for redevelopment for nearly five years until the HSD brought the development to fruition in 2010.
LCMC currently includes Children’s Hospital, Touro Infirmary, Interim LSU Hospital, and the future University Medical Center.
