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 167 years. Good health, expert care, New Orleans babies, and hope- it all comes from Touro.
At Touro, we’ve made some changes to our operations to help keep our patients and staff safe, but one thing that hasn’t changed is the heartfelt care provided by our amazing Touro family.
Moments of Hope
At Touro, hope is all around us. For each COVID-19 patient that is discharged we celebrate that moment for the patient and staff, and it brings hope to everyone that we will get through this together.
Signs of Hope
Going to the hospital during a pandemic can be very stressful for patients, hear first-hand from patients that received care during these trying times and the message of hope they bring to our community.
Cancer, heart disease, surgery- none of that stops, not even for a pandemic. Hear from our physicians how they continue to provide care to their patients in a safe and healing environment.
A new approach
We all know that COVID-19 will remain within our community for quite some time, but with social distancing and infection prevention measures, we can reduce the risk of spread.
Touro has taken innovate steps to continue to care for COVID-19 patients, while safely resuming services for all areas of care in our hospital and outpatient facilities. As you enter our hospital for care, things may look a little different, but everything we do is to care for our patients and community. Here’s what you can expect.
How we’re keeping Touro clean
Our patients’ health and safety is our top priority.
Spread the hope
The dedication of the Touro family and the unwavering support we receive from our community, has brought joy to this dark time. The smiling faces of our healthcare heroes working the front lines brings hope to everyone. Whether it’s hanging a rainbow in your window or supporting our healthcare workers, join us in spreading the hope.
