Tulane University takes over old Ruth's Chris Steakhouse

New Orleans, La. - Tulane University is taking over the old Ruth's Chris Steakhouse on Broad Street to make room for a new community health center. The new Ruth U. Fertel/Tulane Community Health Center and Brinton Family Health & Healing Center will officially be opened on Thursday.

The newly renovated 11,000-square-foot facility will offer primary case, chronic disease management, HIV care and mental health services. The Brinton Family Health & Healing Center will also include space for community events, meetings and more.

The new health center is more than triple the size of the clinic's former location at Covenant House, growing from five to 13 exam rooms with a capacity of 1,500 patient visits per month. Tulane University says this new flagship health center represents a major expansion for Tulane University.
