Our vision is to be a model for a highly successful organization, committed to superior patient care, resident/student education, and innovation in research. We seek to be the premier local and regional provider of otolaryngologic and audiologic services.
As part of our mission, we are committed to innovation and advancement of the field of otolaryngology to improve the care of our patients now and in the future. Our research program spans across important diseases that afflict our patients that we see each day.
Centered in New Orleans, we serve as a vital resource providing otolaryngology care for both public and private patients. Our downtown campus, as well as our historic affiliations with the Ochsner Clinic, University Medical Center New Orleans UMCNO, Touro Infirmary and the Veterans Administration Hospital, has provided the framework for outstanding patient care and an outstanding resident educational experience.
We have developed Healing Hands Across the Divide – a faith and community based partnership focused on eradicating cancer health disparity in the Greater New Orleans area.
Our challenges at a local and national level are great. The solutions are being discovered. It is our goal to have this department play an integral part in the national reshaping of our health care system. We look forward to working with those who dare to take this challenge.
