Founded by a coalition of music advocates in 1998, the New Orleans Musicians’ Clinic is the first medical clinic for musicians, performing artists, and cultural workers in the United States.

The New Orleans Musicians’ Clinic (NOMC) (Est. 1998) provides comprehensive medical care and social services to local musicians, performing artists, cultural workers, and tradition bearers. We serve any patient 19 or older and their family, regardless of insurance status or ability to pay.

The New Orleans Musicians’ Assistance Foundation (NOMAF) is the 501(c)3 non-profit organization that supports and expands the mission of the New Orleans Musicians’ Clinic.

We endeavor to be an equalizing force for those we serve. The NOMC remains the USA’s only low- or no-cost comprehensive medical clinic specifically dedicated to serving the needs of performing artists. The only competition we recognize is the call to do better as we break down the barriers standing between musicians and accessing the care they deserve.
