Various Health Clinics, including Booker T. Washington, Central City Health Clinic, and Health Care for the Homeless of New Orleans,
New Orleans, Louisiana

Mobil medical unit on Canal Street.

Status and Condition:
Closed. No information posted for potential clients at any of the sites for alternative care locations. Evidence and reports of looting. Depending on location, some amount of flooding and hurricane damage occurred. Limited power restoration is underway. No staff on site. All sites described as “destroyed” on HRSA website, though some locations appear structurally sound and possibly salvageable. Two mobile clinics housed in trailers were established to provide limited health care services.

Current challenges:
Making adequate health care available in neighborhoods with limited transportation options and access to traditional hospital services. Communicating with existing and potential clients. Providing enough clinic care as the city is repopulated.
