Showcase 2016: University Medical Center New Orleans

The opening of the new 2.3 million-square-foot University Medical Center New Orleans in August 2015 helped restore clinical healthcare services to New Orleans and formed the cornerstone of a new medical corridor, all of which were lost during Hurricane Katrina.

The project, submitted by NBBJ, earned an honorable mention in the 2016 Healthcare Design Showcase.

The $754 million project includes three patient towers with 424 beds, a diagnostic and treatment building with conference and research facilities in the center of campus, and an adjoining clinic.
