LCMC Health + Tulane University: Extraordinary together

Tulane University and LCMC Health are partnering to serve patients in the greater New Orleans area and beyond.

Tulane University and LCMC Health have partnered to expand access to comprehensive and specialty care across Southeast Louisiana, enhance the region’s capabilities as a destination for medical innovation and training, and increase investment in the community.

The partnership builds on the nonprofit organizations' long history of collaborating to improve the health of patients and communities in New Orleans and across Louisiana.

Together, Tulane University and LCMC Health will advance academic medicine to enhance the care provided to patients; increase investment in groundbreaking research, innovative technology, and lifesaving treatments; expand opportunities to train the next generation of physicians, nurses, and scientists; and accelerate the journey to make Louisiana a destination for healthcare.

Under this partnership, Tulane Medical Center, Lakeview Regional Medical Center, and Tulane Lakeside Hospital will join LCMC Health’s network of healthcare facilities. The majority of services provided at Tulane Medical Center will shift, over time, to University Medical Center New Orleans and East Jefferson General Hospital. All employees at the three hospitals – Tulane Medical Center, Tulane Lakeside Hospital, and Lakeview Regional Medical Center – will continue to have jobs under this exciting partnership. Additionally, this partnership will bring LCMC Health and Tulane University employees new and expanded opportunities for growth and advancement.

Bringing together a nationally recognized, leading research university and an award-winning, community-based healthcare system will result in the collaboration our state and region need to make Louisiana a destination for healthcare.

We hope all Tulanians share in the excitement of this truly extraordinary opportunity as we embark on a life-changing and long-lasting new path in caring for our community and region. Together with LCMC Health we can do more for our patients, city and region – not for ourselves, but for our own.
