How It Works
The Musicians’ Clinic is housed within the LSU Healthcare Network. Patients see a family nurse practitioner for primary healthcare that can refer patients to more than 16 specialty departments and many additional healthcare providers. NOMC serves any patient 19+ regardless of insurance status or ability to pay. We are located in the LSU Health building on St. Charles Avenue.
Why The NOMC?
We understand that musicians and performers have health care needs that are both the same and unique as others. We also know that insurance and healthcare can be intimidating. Our culturally-sensitive approach works within our community network to ensure you have the care you need – whether you’re managing a chronic disease, not feeling well, or just want to speak to a medical professional who understands.
