NEW ORLEANS (AP) - University Medical Center New Orleans says its first year in operation included more than 237,000 visits by patients and employment of more than 2,240 full-time staffer members.

A news release Tuesday says its staff dealt with 155,835 clinic visits, 81,330 emergency visits, and 11,736 admissions over the first 365 days.
