Medical Monitoring Station at the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center
This facility provides an isolated environment for COVID-19 positive individuals transferred from area Healthcare Providers in order to free up needed acute care hospital beds for those in need of hospitalization. At this MMS facility patients receive housing, meals, low-intensity medical monitoring (e.g. vital signs twice daily), over the counter medications, and proximity to doctors, nurses and paramedics who can stabilize patients who become in need of a higher level of care and return them in a timely manner to an area hospital. There is no cost to the patient for these services. No walk-ins are accepted.
