LSU Health New Orleans Status Update
We have received notification that the hard freeze forecast for tonight and tomorrow morning is expected to cause significant re-icing of major roads in southeast Louisiana. For your safety, in consultation with President Alexander, we have decided that LSU Health New Orleans academic downtown and dental campuses will remain closed Thursday, January 18, 2018. Classes and other academic activities, as well as clinical care at the dental school, will be cancelled.
The LSU Healthcare Network plans to open its clinics for patient appointments beginning at 10:00 a.m.
This closure applies only to the academic campuses of LSU Health Sciences Center New Orleans. Hospital personnel should follow hospital emergency procedures and instructions.
Please take appropriate measures to remain safe and warm during this dangerous weather event and stay off the roads as much as possible.
We plan to resume normal operations on Friday, January 19, 2018.
