Ascension DePaul Services New Orleans (ADSNO) mirrors the work of our founders, the Daughters of Charity, who have provided compassionate health care in New Orleans for 185 years. After the sale of Hotel Dieu Hospital in 1992, the Daughters transitioned their efforts, establishing a community health ministry offering primary and preventive health services that address the needs of the total individual – mind, body and spirit. Our 11 health centers, operating as DePaul Community Health Centers (DCHC), are conveniently located in Algiers, Bywater, Carrollton, Gentilly, Gretna, Kenner, Louisa, Metairie (2 locations), New Orleans East and Prytania.
DCHC provides care for chronic illnesses such as asthma, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and depression. Women’s health, behavioral/mental health, dental, optometry, pharmacy, podiatry and Women, Infants and Children (WIC) services are also available at select health centers. A proud member of Ascension, the nation’s largest Catholic and non-profit health care system, ADSNO’s mission, inspired by the Daughters of Charity, is to improve the health and well-being of our community and to be a presence of the Love of Jesus in the lives of all we serve and with whom we partner.
