Tulane University Medical Center (TUMC)      
This 300-bed hospital, located opposite the medical school on Tulane Avenue, consolidates a wide range of patient services in a tertiary care environment. Each year, the Tulane University Hospital serves thousands of private patients from throughout Louisiana, the southeastern United States, and Central and South America.

The School of Medicine is the nucleus of Tulane Medical Center, which also includes the Tulane School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine, the Delta Regional Primate Research Center near Covington, LA, and the U.S.-Japan Biomedical Research Laboratories, among others.

Within these facilities, our Anesthesiology residents rotate on the wards, clinics, and ICU at TUMC during their internships. In the CA-1 through CA-3 years, they work at TUMC for the following rotations: General Anesthesia, Regional Anesthesia, Neuro-Anesthesia, Cardiac Anesthesia, Advanced Pediatric Anesthesia, Surgical Intensive Care Unit, Pain Management, Post-Anesthetic Care Unit, and Pre-Op Clinic.

Tulane-Lakeside Hospital and Clinic      
Since opening in 1964, Lakeside Hospital has delivered over 90,000 babies and treated well over 300,000 patients. Tulane-Lakeside Hospital's commitment to treating women and their babies has grown by expanding services and offering a wider range of healthcare options for the entire family. Tulane-Lakeside Hospital provides the knowledge, expertise and specialized care vital to the maintenance of family health.

In July, 2005, Tulane University Hospital & Clinic merged with Lakeside Hospital to become a leading teaching facility in the community. We provide cutting edge technology in many specialties, including Obstetrics/Gynecology, Urology, Radiology, Ophthalmology, Otolaryngology (ENT), and Surgery.

Given these facilities, our residents are exposed to the faster pace of practice in a community setting as compared to the University setting. Importantly, as Tulane-Lakeside is a family-oriented hospital, our residents are largely responsible for providing Obstetrical Anesthesia, as well as other services. Our CA-1 through CA-3 residents rotate at Lakeside for General Anesthesia, Obstetrical Anesthesia, and Pain Management.

Charity/University Hospital      
Charity Hospital was founded in 1737 and is the longest continually running public hospital in the country. Tulaneís involvement with staffing the Charity wards, beginning in 1834, dates back to the very beginning of the university's history. Almost since itís inception, Charity and Tulane have been partners in delivering healthcare to the underserved populations of our community.

In the past 270 years, there have been six buildings that housed the Charity Institution, the most recent of which is pictured above. Prior to Hurricane Katrina, plans were set in motion to replace the 75 year old building, and soon, the new Charity Hospital will find its place next to the Tulane medical complex (between Tulane Avenue and Canal Street). For now, however, the Charity Institution operates through University Hospital, which sits four blocks from the Tulane Medical School, Tulane Hospital, and the VA. It has 350 beds, and no patients are managed by private physicians, so all care is provided by Residents and their Attending physicians.

Tulane Anesthesiology residents rotate at Charity/University Hospital to gain experience in the SICU, as well as Trauma Anesthesia and Cardiac Anesthesia.

Children's Hospital of New Orleans      
Children's Hospital is the only full-service pediatric hospital in Louisiana. It is located in a beautiful, historic neighborhood in Uptown New Orleans, adjacent to Audubon Park and Zoo. It originated as a rehabilitation hospital, but, over the last 20 years, it has become a comprehensive facility providing a wide range of services for all children.

This 188-bed hospital includes general pediatric floors, pediatric and neonatal intensive-care units, an acute-care rehabilitation unit, an oncology unit, and a spinal unit. It houses a state-of-the art cardiac catheterization lab and a large surgical suite. There are approximately 6700 admissions referred from every parish in Louisiana, from 40 other states, and from 10 foreign countries per year. The Emergency Department evaluates over 33,000 patients each year, and the ambulatory care center has over 91,000 visits per year. The spectrum of clinical pathology and disease processes is vast, from the most common pediatric problems to the most rare diseases.

The medical staff at Children's Hospital is comprised of 375 individuals representing all pediatric medical and surgical subspecialties. This provides comprehensive medical care as well as a thorough training experience. The hospital serves as the primary pediatric clinical site for multiple training programs, including respiratory therapy, physical, and occupational therapy.

Tulane Anesthesiology residents will be exposed to the complete spectrum of pediatric surgical subspecialties and cases during their Pediatric Anesthesiology rotation at Childrenís Hospital.
