Voices From The WWNO Listening Post: Charity Hospital

The Charity Hospital building has been vacant since Hurricane Katrina.
Steve Myers

The 1939 Charity Hospital building served the healthcare needs of generations of the city’s poor. However, its basement flooded during hurricane Katrina, and for the past eight years the building has remained vacant.

WWNO’s Listening Post collected audio from its two regular recording locations — at Norman Mayer Library in Gentilly and HeadQuarters Barbershop on Broad Street — to hear what people had to say about the redevelopment of Charity Hospital and the surrounding area. The Listening Post asked people these questions:

Some Of The Best On Music Inside Out

Shannon Powell, Marcia Ball, Alex McMurray, Dr. Michael White and Jon Cleary

Our good friends at WWNO are in the midst of a fund drive — that niggling but necessary part of the way that public radio in which listeners like you help pay for the programs you love.

Take it from us: the easiest way to listen during a fund drive is with a clear conscience. So give our friends a call and cough up the coin. Then sit back and listen with the smug satisfaction that you’re a member. As they say in the biz: operators are standing-by. 800-286-7002

Voices From The WWNO Listening Post: Healthcare

The Listening Post visited a health fair in Tremé to hear what people have to say about healthcare in the city.
Jesse Hardman

Hundreds of thousands of Louisiana residents don’t have health insurance. The number ranges from about 600,000 to 900,000.

The federal health insurance exchanges opened for enrollment on Oct. 1. The idea is to get uncovered people into an insurance plan, with a mix of government subsidies and a co-pay from the recipient. However, many people below the poverty line will still need to rely on Louisiana’s safety net hospitals.
