Touro Featured in Advocate's Tricentennial Series

New Orleans’ longest-serving hospital, Touro Infirmary, has a history as storied as New Orleans itself. The hospital was founded in 1852 by businessman and philanthropist Judah Touro. Touro purchased the Paulding Mansion in the lower Garden District and the home was converted into a 28-bed hospital, with Joseph Bensadon as the founding surgeon.
