UMC New Orleans Exterior Shot

Description:

Designed around lessons learned during Hurricane Katrina, all critical functions of University Medical Center New Orleans are located at least 21 feet above base flood elevation. With storm-resistant technology and emergency electrical backup power, UMC New Orleans is capable of withstanding the impacts of a major hurricane, including the force of a 2x4 hitting the exterior at 200 miles per hour, while still remaining in operation for up to a week with virtually no outside support or backup supplies.
