“I am the Clinic's Family Nurse Practitioner and my patients are mainly musicians, Mardi Gras Indians, and artists. [In addition to] primary and specialty care, social work, and mental health, we offer a lot of support through the Assistance Foundation – such as counseling and community health programs that are really necessary for the wellbeing of our patients.”
Family Nurse Practitioner since 2004, New Orleans Musicians’ Clinic
“The Musicians’ Clinic has been around for us for years – a lot of musicians that cannot afford [care] or don’t have insurance – the Clinic has always been there to give us a helping hand. I’m proud to say I am a part of it.”
Musician, NOMC Patient, Founder of The Danny Barker Banjo and Guitar Festival
“In 2013, the Musicians’ Clinic helped save my life. After an appointment with NOMC, I was found to have a mass in my left kidney. They connected me to a robotic surgery that saved my life. I know they’ve saved so many others. So please support their work and the creative communities of New Orleans.”
Musician, NOMC Patient, Co-Founder of the Congo Square Preservation Society and Bamboula 2000
“The NOMC is so much more than just healthcare for musicians. It provides programs for many different types of artists and gives local culture bearers so many opportunities to take care of their head, health, and heart.”
Burlesque Performer & Producer, NOMC community health advocate
“The Musicians’ Clinic has eliminated the barriers. If musicians don’t have access to money or transportation, they can still have access to good, quality medical care at the Clinic. It really is important for all of us: because when you are healthy as an artist, you are able to practice your art. I know that the elders in our community look forward to seeing me on Carnival Day, but I have to be healthy. So thank you to the Musicians’ Clinic.”

A Message From Ivan Neville
“Most musicians do not have good healthcare, some have no healthcare at all. I don’t know what I would do without the New Orleans Musicians’ Clinic.”
