Message to Vendors Regarding Paper Invoices and ACH Transfers

Please do not send physical, paper invoices to the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Accounts Payable Department until further notice.

Our facility is working with the Governor’s Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness (GOHSEP), and the Louisiana Department of Health to temporarily utilize the Convention Center as a Medical Monitoring Facility (MMF) for patients recovering from COVID-19, for up to 60 days as our hospitals exceed capacity for patients needing acute care.

Our Accounting Department does not have access to any mail sent to the Convention Center, nor access to our offices to print checks.

Please be sure that your company is set up with ACH to ensure that we are able to pay you in a timely manner.

If you have not yet set up ACH, please know that it is FREE. There’s no charge from us, or from your bank, to set up ACH payments. Setting up and using ACH is FAST and EASY.

Please use our secure website to submit your documents electronically.

If you prefer to fill out the form manually and scan it, please download and print the ACH Authorization form HERE and return it via email with a scanned copy of your voided check or bank letter to

If you have any questions concerning the ACH program or completion of the form, please contact the Purchasing Department at 504-582-3035.

We thank you for your understanding and your flexibility during this difficult time, and we will keep you informed as to when we resume operations at our normal office location.
