FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – December 4, 2019

Local Health System In Top 10% US Hospitals for Neuro, Spine and Overall Care
2020 Rankings Reveal High Quality Performance for St. Tammany Health System

COVINGTON – CareChex named St. Tammany Health System among the top 10% of hospitals in the nation for spine and neurological care as well as overall medical, hospital and surgical care. Additionally, the national quality rating agency deemed STHS number one in Louisiana for interventional coronary care and trauma.

 

The spine and neurological designations add credence to last month’s national recognition by Healthgrades, naming St. Tammany among America’s 100 Best Hospitals for Spine Surgery.

 

The overall hospital, medical and surgical excellence designations reflect St. Tammany’s decades’ long quality, safety and patient experience performance, including national recognitions by Leapfrog and U.S. News as well as accreditation by The Joint Commission.

 

Earning #1 in Louisiana for trauma care reflects the hospital’s longstanding commitment to superior quality emergency care and its verification this year of Trauma Level 3 status by the State of Louisiana and American College of Surgeons.

 

Earning #1 in Louisiana for interventional coronary care is yet another indication of the hospital’s decades’ long proven track record as the highest quality, highest volume heart hospital on the Northshore.

 

St. Tammany Health System consistently earns national recognition for quality, safety and patient experience. Visit STPH.org/awards for more details.
