Overview – Household Model

At St. Margaret’s at Mercy, we’ve changed the way healthcare is delivered in New Orleans. The recently renovated facility is designed to emulate home, hence why we call it the ‘household model’ of care. No longer will you find traditional nurses stations or long-corridors; rather, you will find residents living comfortably in private rooms within themed household.

Each household is comprised of eight to ten beds (90% are private rooms) and joins with another household to form a neighborhood. Each household comes equipped with a hearth room, dining room, and country kitchen – amenities that give the household the atmosphere of a home. Residents enjoy the warm, wafting aromas of cooked-to-order breakfasts and other meals just as they would if they were sitting in their own dining rooms.

We invite you to come tour our facility for your long-term or short-term stay needs.
