Ten years after the levees and floodwalls broke during Hurricane Katrina and flooded New Orleans, the Big Easy finally has a full-scale public hospital again, a new Charity hospital.  Starting at 6 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 1 the brand new 1.6-million-square-foot University Medical Center New Orleans, built with $1.1 billion of federal rebuilding money, will open its doors to ambulances and the general public.
