The Pre-Op nursing team helps you prepare for surgery at St. Tammany Parish Hospital by providing education about your surgery, what to expect while in the hospital and what to do when you return home.

Full-service laboratory testing is available Monday-Saturday. While most tests can be performed without an appointment, patients are encouraged to contact the Pre-Access Center at 985-871-5665 for an appointment and to receive additional information, including how to properly prepare for a test.
