From emergency and operating rooms to in-house pharmacies, teams of specialists, state-of-the-art technologies, and the staff members who keep everything running, hospitals are complex machines with gears and cogs spinning beyond what patients see. Whether a small surgical hospital or a comprehensive health care system spanning across the state, the organizations that offer surgical and non-surgical healthcare solutions are consistently expanding services, analyzing processes, incorporating research, and making improvements behind the scenes. From garnering new accreditations and awards to adding population-specific services, or opening new locations, hospitals are buzzing with news and offerings patients will be excited to receive. This summer, check out what’s new from a variety of hospitals across Greater New Orleans and Louisiana and know where to turn when specialized care is needed.
