LCMC Health & UMCNO statement on the passing of Dr. Norman McSwain

University Medical Center New Orleans is grieving the loss of a beloved member of our family, a medical trailblazer and a hero to many. Dr. Norman McSwain saved countless lives, trained thousands of physicians, and inspired an immeasurable number of colleagues, friends, and patients. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends during this difficult time.

As we mourn the loss of this medical giant, we continue to be amazed by the revolutionary impact he made on our hospital and the industry. Dr. McSwain’s talents made him highly sought after, but he chose to stay in and care for the city of New Orleans. His decades of leadership have forever changed our community for the better.

Though our hearts will be heavy as we open the doors to University Medical Center New Orleans on August 1, we are deeply honored that Dr. McSwain was such an integral part of our organization. We will forever feel blessed to have called him our mentor and our friend.
