Your One-Stop Shop for Metro New Orleans Statistics

The New Orleans Index at Eight, released this month, is a publication dedicated to examining trends and progress in the New Orleans metropolitan area since Hurricane Katrina. The updated Index measures economic growth, inclusion, quality of life, and sustainability. The data gathered for New Orleans metro is then compared to a peer group of post-industrial metros determined pre-2000: Nashville, Orlando, Raleigh, and Austin.

Positive economic improvements made at eight years include a recouping of jobs to 1% above its 2008 job level, diversification in knowledge-based industry in the area, and a growth in start-ups. Inclusion improvements show that New Orleans metro did not fall as sharply as the nation in median household income (3% difference), and minority-owned businesses increased to 27 %. New Orleans metro quality of life data shows a strong increase in the number of arts and culture nonprofits at 34 organizations per 100,000 residents, more than double the national rate. And finally, New Orleans metro sustainability has grown in its expansion of bicycle lanes to 56.2 miles.

While these improvements are notable, the New Orleans metro has a long way to go before it can be considered to be in competition with the exponential growth of its peer cities of Nashville, Orlando, Raleigh, and Austin. As the IndexÔÇÖs summary states, ÔÇ£Despite all the shocks it has endure, New Orleans may be on a path toward long-term success. But to fulfill its potential, leaders must look to bolster current strengths and add to them by addressing persistent challenges.ÔÇØ

LSUHSC Faculty Are the Best Doctors 2013

Want to know whoÔÇÖs the best? Just pick up a copy of the August issue of New Orleans Magazine for a comprehensive list of the Best Doctors (599 doctors in 76 specialties) in the Greater New Orleans area. Recipients for this recognition were chosen from a nationwide peer survey of more than 45,000 doctors.

LSU Health Sciences Center faculty boasts a whopping 45 positions on the list across a wide range specialties. Their expertise includes the fields of allergy and immunology, anesthesiology, cardiovascular disease, colon and rectal surgery, critical care medicine, family medicine, infectious disease, internal medicine, internal medicine and hospital medicine, neurology, nuclear medicine, ophthalmology, orthopaedic surgery, pathology, pediatric neurology, pediatric specialistÔÇöchild and adolescent psychiatry, physical medicine and rehabilitation, psychiatry, pulmonary medicine, rheumatology, surgery, sleep medicine, urology, and vascular surgery.

LSUHSCÔÇÖs very own Dr. Ann H. Tilton stands in the spotlight for her work in pediatric neurology, an ÔÇ£exclusive clubÔÇØ of only 1,200 members in the U. S. and Canada. In recognition of her contributions to the field, Dr. Tilton won the Hower Award from the Child Neurology Society in 2012. Dr. Tilton currently holds positions of Professor of neurology and pediatrics at LSU Health Sciences Center and practicing physician at ChildrenÔÇÖs Hospital. At ChildrenÔÇÖs, she also serves as co-director of the Rehabilitation Center, having established and directed the centerÔÇÖs Comprehensive Spasticity Program.

In general, Dr. TiltonÔÇÖs patients suffer from strokes, clotting problems, trauma, infection, or birth defects. When asked about her toughest cases, Dr. Tilton spoke about the coping of her child-patients versus that of their parents. Whereas children are flexible and resilient, their parents ÔÇ£have to deal with a ÔÇÿnew normal,ÔÇÖ one that differs drastically from the life they were living.ÔÇØ For this reason, teams of therapists (physical, occupational, speech), dieticians, and physicians work together to best care for the patient as a whole.

Congratulations to all who made the list! You can view the Best Doctors online or peruse the LibraryÔÇÖs copy of the magazine in our ÔÇ£Popular ReadingÔÇØ section.
