New Orleans Smallpox Hospital

Classification: Query
I would like to know the location and staff, if possible for "The Smallpox Hospital operated by Union surgeons between 1864-1866 in New Orleans. Or where I could locate this information. The staff would have also tended the sick in the stockade on Ship Island, east of New Orleans and just south of Mississippi.

I believe the duty was of the New York 72nd, 2nd division, 2nd Brigade, 3rd Army Corps surgeon, but it seems that several of those regiments were regrouped, the 72nd, 73rd 74th, etc. So it is difficult to be specific.

Thank you
