These are just a few of the most promising opportunities of an exciting new partnership between Tulane and LCMC Health, a healthcare system that serves our families, friends and neighbors across Southeast Louisiana. We are pleased to have the opportunity to collaborate with a mission-based nonprofit that shares our values and vision for academic medical centers as the birthplace of tomorrow’s innovations and the most effective, high-quality care.
Through this partnership, Tulane Medical Center, Lakeview Regional Medical Center, and Tulane Lakeside Hospital will join LCMC Health. Most of the services provided at Tulane Medical Center will shift to University Medical Center, just a few blocks away, and to East Jefferson General Hospital, thus increasing access to comprehensive care for patients in downtown New Orleans, expanding training opportunities for our medical residents and creating larger hubs for specialty care, innovation, and academic medicine in both Orleans and Jefferson Parishes.
Patients who currently receive care at Tulane Medical Center will be able to access the same high-quality care at LCMC Health’s University Medical Center, East Jefferson General Hospital, or other hospitals in the LCMC Health system. Staff at these hospitals will retain their jobs and have new and expanded opportunities for growth and advancement.
