From New Orleans to Metairie to the West Bank, we will help guide you to a neighborhood that makes getting to work that much quicker!
Hospital #1: University Medical Center
This is one of the most popular hospitals that have doctors moving to New Orleans.

Hospital #2: Children’s Hospital
Children’s Hospital is nestled into a residential spot in Uptown New Orleans. More specifically, it’s part of the Audubon neighborhood. Other great areas to consider that are close by are Riverside, Black Pearl, Carrollton, East Carrollton, Garden District, Irish Channel, and Lower Garden District.

Adjacent neighborhoods that would be great alternatives are Milan, Riverside, Uptown, Garden District, LGD, Irish Channel, and Central City.
Hospital #4: New Orleans East Hospital
