Since the closure of various hospitals in New Orleans, the hospital has acquired the services of a transplant surgeon. The LSU interventional cardiology department also relocated to UMC. At the present time, the only interventional cardiology services in the HCSD hospitals are performed here. As a result, UMC has become a referral center for the other hospitals in the system.
