About NOMC

Since 1998, the New Orleans Musicians' Clinic (NOMC) has been dedicated to keeping New Orleans' performers alive in body, mind, and spirit by providing comprehensive health care and mental health/social services. As the "medical home" for more than 2,500 local musicians and tradition bearers, the NOMC's Culture of Caring Model provides cost-efficient access to high quality healthcare and wellness programs for our patients, regardless of their ability to pay.

The New Orleans Musicians Assistance Foundation (NOMAF) evolved from NOMC following Hurricane Katrina in 2005 to expand its mission and promise to keep New Orleans music alive by sustaining New Orleans' traditional music cultures through our Gig Fund and our Emergency Fund.
