Founded by a coalition of music advocates on May 1, 1998, the New Orleans Musicians’ Clinic became the first comprehensive medical clinic for performing artists and culture bearers in the USA.
Our model of coordinated and patient-centered care has saved lives for more than 17 years.
Your gift keeps New Orleans culture alive for generations to come.
In December of 2008, I suffered a stroke and endured months of hospitalization and physical therapy – that time offstage felt like an eternity. The NOMC was there for me every step of the way to get me back performing. The specialists even found a way to include my sousaphone in the physical therapy sessions! THANK YOU, my Musicians’ Clinic family (YOU, the donors) and all of the specialists who supported my long road back.

Ain’t an easy life playin’ music in New Orleans. An’ what you all been puttin’ in the tip jar is nice, but it ain’t gonna pay no medical bills. They do a hell of a job and they workin’ their buns off. The clinic does more than anyone else to help musicians who’s sufferin’. We gotta pull your coat tail to this here thing and get ‘em some lace. We need more. The cause is righteously righteous. Hit up your friends, hit up your neighbors. They ain’t quittin an neither should you.
