Touro Infirmary, guided by the moral and ethical principles of Judaism, is dedicated to improving the health status and well-being of the people it serves through the provision of effective, efficient and compassionate healthcare services.


This 150-year-old private, not-for-profit, full-service 576 bed hospital offers state of the art medical care including NeuroSciences, cardiology, cancer treatment, orthopedics, ophthalmology, diabetes treatment, obstetrics and gynecology, emergency services and rehabilitation. Also, the New Orleans Regional P.E.T. and Gamma Knife center, a collaboration of Tulane and L.S.U. Medical Schools, is housed on Touro’s campus. Earning a near-perfect score of 98% on its recent survey by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations, Touro is recognized by U.S. News & World Report as “One of America’s Best Hospitals.” Touro Rehabilitation Center was voted “Outstanding Rehabilitation Facility of 2001” by the International Association of Rehabilitation Professionals. Touro’s outstanding reputation in OB has earned it the distinction of being known locally as the hospital “where babies come from.” Touro offers kosher meals for patients.


Touro’s $30 million Woldenberg Village, The Retirement Community, was completed in 2002 and offers a complete continuum of services for aging in place.
