The Associated Press is reporting this complete assessment of Hurricane Katrina’s damage:
Deaths 1,100 200
People Displaced 786,000 110,000
Destroyed Homes 217,000 68,700
Destroyed Schools 835 263
Destroyed Hospitals 10 2
Businesses Closed 18,800 1,900
Jobs Lost 240,000 46,000
I cannot find a list of the destroyed hospitals, but I can make a good guess on the 10 in Louisiana: Chalmette Medical Center, Methodist Hospital, Bywater Hospital, Lindy Boggs Medical Center (formerly Mercy Hospital), Lifecare-Chalmette, Lifecare-Memorial, Memorial Medical Center, Charity Hospital, University Hospital, Tulane Medical Center.
Of all these hospitals, only Tulane is currently being renovated for reopening. I was on staff at Chalmette Medical Center and Methodist, and worked at all the others (with the exception of Bywater) as a resident.
I will post pictures of my old neighborhood on my website soon, for the curious.
