As the population of West St. Tammany grows, so does the partnership between St. Tammany Parish Hospital (STPH) and the Ochsner Health Network.
Ochsner pediatric subspecialists saw 1,500 children in the cobranded clinic in 2016, and the newly opened STPH pediatric emergency department allows for the broadest spectrum of pediatric care. Ochsner added neurosurgeons at STPH and enabled neurosurgery procedures to increase from 228 in 2014 to 355 in 2016, while STPH is building a Neurosurgery Critical Care Unit to accommodate post-neurosurgery patients. Together, St. Tammany and Ochsner are delivering results. For more on the partnership, click here.
