LSU Health New Orleans will resume normal operations on Wednesday, August 30, 2017. Classes will be held, and patients will be seen as scheduled at clinics located on the downtown New Orleans and dental school campuses. Patient appointments that had to be cancelled on Tuesday, August 29, 2017, will be rescheduled as soon as possible.

Out of an abundance of caution due to the flooding threat posed by Tropical Storm Harvey coupled with the city's diminished pumping capacity, the university was closed Tuesday. Both campuses are in geographically vulnerable locations and both experienced flooding earlier this month.

LSU Health New Orleans is the most comprehensive health sciences university in the state. In its Schools of Medicine, Dentistry, Nursing, Allied Health Professions, Graduate Studies and Public Health, LSU Health New Orleans educates the majority of health care professionals practicing in Louisiana, as well as research scientists, health leaders and future faculty.
