Join Our Krewe - The Krewe of Hotel Dieu!

• Born at Hotel Dieu Hospital?

• Taught by a Daughter of Charity at Hotel Dieu School of Nursing?
• Touched by the special care you or someone you know received at Hotel Dieu or DePaul Hospital?

If you answered YES to any of the above questions, we want YOU to join our Krewe!

The Daughters of Charity founded Hotel Dieu Hospital in 1859 as a way to provide private, faith-based health care to all segments of our community. Throughout the next century, the hospital became a staple in New Orleans and served as the birth and healing place for thousands of New Orleanians.

Realizing a great need for medical services at the community level, Daughters of Charity National Health System (now Ascension Health) shifted its focus in the New Orleans market from acute care to primary care and prevention and established Daughters of Charity Services of New Orleans (DCSNO) in 1996. One thing has remained constant: the Daughters' unending commitment to providing high-quality health care to all, especially those who are struggling.

As we celebrate the Daughters’ 184th year of providing health care in New Orleans, DCSNO has created the Krewe of Hotel Dieu to gather stories about New Orleanians’ experiences at Hotel Dieu Hospital.
