Keeping your family safe

Don't delay getting the medical care your children need to stay healthy.

As our community continues to adjust to a new normal, we want our patients and families to know what steps Children’s Hospital is taking to keep you safe, and what to expect when visiting our hospital or clinics.

Children’s Hospital, and our providers, are here for you and are continuing to provide expert care for kids in our hospital, emergency department, clinics and through virtual care. You can expect to receive the same level of care you have come to know and trust from the Children’s Hospital family.

To reschedule a visit or procedure, call 504.896.2888 for specialty care, or click here to contact your pediatrician’s office.

We understand you may feel anxious about visiting the hospital or doctor’s office in person and want you to know that keeping your family safe it our top priority. It is important to keep up with scheduled appointments, including well check-ups, immunizations, and follow-up specialty care to ensure your child stays healthy.

In the hospital, we have also taken extra precautions to ensure a safe environment for your child’s care, from our inpatient units to our emergency department, and surgery to imaging and lab work.
