Children's Hospital’s Kids First locations located Uptown on Prytania Street, in New Orleans East, and in Kenner have recently transitioned to Daughters of Charity Pediatric Clinics. In addition, the Kids First Mid-City clinic has relocated to the Daughters of Charity Health Center at 3201 South Carrollton Ave.
