LCMC Health and Tulane University have finalized their partnership, following approval from the Louisiana Department of Justice. Through this partnership, Tulane Medical Center, Lakeview Regional Medical Center and Tulane Lakeside Hospital will join LCMC Health. 

This partnership brings benefits to New Orleans and Southeast Louisiana by expanding access to comprehensive and specialty care, advancing academic medicine, boosting innovation and training in the region, and providing investment and other benefits to the community. The combined organization will also mean more investment in research, innovative technology and lifesaving treatments. 

The integration of Tulane University’s facilities with LCMC Health will take place over the next 12-24 months. Operations at all facilities will continue as normal while LCMC Health and Tulane collaborate to ensure a seamless transition for patients, physicians, and staff. 

Tulane Medical Center will shift most its services to East Jefferson General Hospital and University Medical Center New Orleans. This shift will create expanded opportunities for comprehensive, integrated care at facilities that can support new growth and provide an enhanced patient experience. 

This approach also will increase access to comprehensive care in downtown New Orleans and create expanded hubs for specialty care, innovation and academic medicine in Orleans and Jefferson parishes. 

This partnership is part of Tulane University’s commitment of $1 billion to Louisiana’s economy. This commitment will emphasize commercialization of research and entrepreneurship and include reimaging of the Charity Hospital and Tulane Medical Center buildings. Together, these facilities will house a new nursing program, clinical research programs, educational space for students, an exponential increase in space dedicated to research and graduate programs in public health, social work and medicine.
