Hope

All over the world drawings of rainbows have appeared in business windows, sidewalk chalk art and front doors of homes, as a symbol of hope throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. From every healthcare hero that walks our halls to every patient that gets to go home, hope is all around us. Through hurricanes and global pandemics, Touro remains New Orleans’ hospital for over 169 years. Good health, expert care, New Orleans babies, and hope- it all comes from Touro.
