The Interim LSU Public Hospital (ILH) and New Orleans Faith Health Alliance (NOFHA) have expanded access to affordable health care for the uninsured. A health care provider from the ILH will see uninsured patients from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. every Monday at NOFHA (First Grace United Methodist Church, 3401 Canal St., 486-8585) for primary health care. Appointments are required, and service fees are calculated on a sliding scale depending on income.
NOFHA also offers health care from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Fridays and from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. the third Saturday of every month. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, a partnership between ILA and the March of Dimes provides a mobile health center for mothers, pregnant women and their children up to 2 years old. For an appointment at the mobile center, call 235-1706.
