Dr. Yvens Laborde is a member of the Ochsner Health System Board and President of the Greater New Orleans Academy of Internal Medicine.
In response to the ongoing medical crisis unfolding in Haiti in the wake of a major earthquake, Hurricane Tomas and the massive cholera epidemic, Ochsner West Bank Regional Medical Director Dr. Yvens Laborde has traveled to the island nation to assist relief efforts. A native of Haiti, Dr. Laborde joined the Ochsner family in 1995 with a specialty in internal medicine. Dr. Laborde continues to post updates on his efforts as he works to help heal millions of displaced Haitian citizens.
On behalf of Dr. Laborde, Ochsner has organized a donation fund with an established Haitian health relief organization. Your donations will go directly to medicine, water and shelter for the Haitian people in need.
