Touro has plans and teams in place, ready to act, if an emergency begins to effect the New Orleans area. Similarly, you should be prepared to implement your own personal emergency plan for you and your family. Access the resource links to the right of this page to help you with planning and staying informed.
Touro’s hurricane plan is designed to ensure the safety of our patients and staff. In preparing our plan we have worked closely with state and local governments, the Louisiana Hospital Association, our medical staff and employees.
When a hurricane or tropical storm threatens New Orleans, Touro will activate its emergency plan to provide patients, staff, physicians and family members with up-to-date information regarding our preparations, announcements about closing and reopening the facilities, and other relevant instructions. In addition www.touro.com
will be updated with vital information.
