Partners in care: how your gift can make a difference

Today, more than ever, Touro Infirmary depends on contributions from our friends and supporters. The financial strength of the Foundation secures the hospital’s permanence as a valued resource in the community. Just as Touro Infirmary depends on the generosity of its donors, the well-being of our entire community depends on Touro Infirmary. Your support is the foundation of our success, and your gift will make a difference.

  • Cardiac Transport Monitor transports patients requiring uninterrupted cardiac monitoring
  • CT Simulator uses state-of-the-art technology to give radiation oncology patients the best available care
  • Patient Flow Software reduces wait time in our Emergency Department, one of the busiest in Orleans Parish
