About LCMC Health
We’re a New Orleans-based, non-profit health system on a mission: to provide the best possible care for every person and parish in Louisiana and beyond, and to put a little more heart and soul into healthcare along the way. And that means we do things a little differently around here.
Treating people like family is the LCMC Health way, and it always has been. Founded by Louisiana’s only freestanding children’s hospital, we’ve grown into a healthcare system that’s built to serve the unique needs of our communities and families.
Today, we offer five hospital locations: Children’s Hospital, Touro, University Medical Center New Orleans, New Orleans East Hospital, and West Jefferson Medical Center. We also offer a network of urgent care centers across the greater New Orleans area. With over 2,000 board-certified physicians specializing in everything from head to toe, our community can count on us to provide the right care, right where they need it.

The Acute Adult Health RN is a direct patient care provider who demonstrates the knowledge and skills necessary to provide care to acutely ill adult and geriatric patients with cardiac, medical, surgical, and post-critical care needs. Typical direct care patients include those who are at minimal-to-moderately high risk and to a large extent care is routine, standardized and outcomes are predictable.
