    Room Service

    St. Tammany Parish Hospital is proud to provide its patients and their guests in-room food service. Patients select from our delicious physician-selected menus and call in exactly what they wish to eat when they wish to dine. Choose what you want, when you want it by calling 898-4300 (ext. 4300) and a Room Service Specialist will visit to review our menu.

    We ask that patients do not eat in the cafeteria. The Food Service Department is dedicated to providing you with exceptional service during your stay at St. Tammany Parish Hospital.
