Health Care & Katrina…Two Years Later

The Kaiser Family Foundation has dedicated resources in the aftermath of the disaster to track the rebuilding efforts of the New Orleans area with a special focus on the health care needs of residents.

As part of this effort, the Foundation has created a Health Care in the Aftermath of Hurricane Katrina resource page, offering a wealth of resources related to an ongoing effort to monitor and study the health coverage and needs of the victims.

Here you’ll find surveys, survivor experiences, statistics and health coverage reports. Visitors can even listen to interviews, including one from from Cathi Fontenot, M.D., medical director, Medical Center of Louisiana at New Orleans, discussing the current health care situation in New Orleans two years later.
