Employee Assistance
for Catastrophic Loss

Our recovery

We’re proud of our response to Hurricane Ida and the recovery resources we have put in place for our employees. We directly impacted our extraordinary team members everyday lives. This included providing everything from hotel rooms, access to fuel, and employee storm loss assistance. To date, over 6,600 employees have received financial assistance for losses experienced from the storm. The goal of this program was to provide direct assistance for employees to have funds in their pocket when they needed it most. LCMC Health has invested over $3.2 million in our team members who experienced storm losses.

Everyone has been impacted by Hurricane Ida differently. We recognize there are many who have experienced unforeseeable catastrophic losses.

We're here for those who have been here for us

Our employees are the magic ingredient to providing healthcare with heart to our patients and the community. LCMC Health has partnered with the Greater New Orleans Foundation to develop a $2.5 million fund to provide additional financial support for our employees who’ve experienced a great deal of loss from Hurricane Ida.

Full-time employees can receive up to $5,000 if employed with LCMC Health for more than three years and up to $2,500 if employed for less than three years. Part-time employees can receive up to $2,500 if employed with LCMC Health for more than three years and up to $1,250 if employed for less than three years.
