Hurricane Katrina decimated thousands of buildings in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA, in 2005, including a U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) medical facility that served approximately 40,000 military families. The hospital, also where world-class research was conducted and more than 500 medical students were training to become physicians, suffered so much damage that it had to be replaced.
