Mandeville Emergency Department Now Open
STPH MANDEVILLE EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT OPEN AND SERVING PATIENTS
COVINGTON LA - St. Tammany Parish Hospital opened its Mandeville Emergency Department and began providing care this morning, Tuesday, November 28, 9 a.m., at 2929 Hwy 190, across from the Mandeville post office.
The facility, designed to provide Mandeville residents quicker access to emergency care and St. Tammany Parish Hospital systems, is now in continuous service, staffed and providing care at all times.
“Adding the Mandeville Emergency Department is a way that we can live our mission and deliver on our promise of world-class healthcare close to home,” STPH CEO Patti Ellish said. “Starting this morning, emergency services became available 24/7/365 in the new Mandeville facility, just as they are at our main campus in Covington.”
The Mandeville location is a full-service emergency department able to treat emergent health situations including heart attack and stroke. It has onsite diagnostics and access to specialists, including Ochsner vascular neurologists via TeleStroke.
STPH employees staff the Mandeville Emergency Department, and the emergency medicine specialists providing physician services onsite are the same board-certified physicians serving in the STPH main campus emergency department.
Similar to main campus ED, patients should seek primary or urgent care for non-emergency healthcare and seek emergency care when experiencing severe issues beyond the scope of urgent or primary care offices.
A full-service acute care facility committed to providing world-class healthcare and the latest technology, St. Tammany Parish Hospital delivers today’s life-improving procedures with the utmost care to area residents with emphasis on wellness, preventive care and disease management close to home. STPH is recognized for quality, safety and the patient experience by Leapfrog, Hospital Compare, Healthgrades, CareChex and Women’s Choice. STPH is a self-supporting not-for-profit community hospital; it receives no ad valorem tax funding. Learn more at stph.org.
