Patients & Visitors

Creating a welcoming environment

Welcome to Children’s Hospital New Orleans and thank you for entrusting your child’s care to us. We look forward to providing the highest quality patient-centered medical care. Here at Children’s Hospital the patient/family experience is an integral part of our care and we encourage you to give us your input.

What is Patient and Family-Centered Care?

An approach to providing healthcare services that encourage the health and well-being of children and young adults through a respectful partnership between healthcare providers, patients, and families.

This partnership empowers patients and families by including them in:

  • decision making
  • providing education
  • participating in patient care
  • encouraging questions
