Children's Hospital stands ready to offer additional care to pediatric patients across the state

Children's Hospital New Orleans stands ready to take in any additional pediatric patients from across the state of Louisiana in order to free up space in adult hospitals. 

Our Chief Medical Officer, Dr. George Bisset, explains how the admission criteria is being flexed in order to accept young adults during the coronavirus surge. 

"If there are places that have pockets of pediatric patients that they would like to send to us so they can free up space for their intensive care patients or their sicker adult patients, [then that's what we are prepared to do,]" says Dr. Bisset.
