The jazzy sounds of JD Hill and the Jammers created a festive atmosphere on Thursday (June 7) in Mid-City New Orleans for the dedication of a new Tulane healthcare facility. The ceremony marked the official opening of the Ruth U. Fertel/Tulane Community Health Center and Brinton Family Health & Healing Center.

At the location that was Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse, 711 N. Broad St., the 11,000-square-foot center offers high-quality, cost-effective health care to residents.
