24-7 Emergency Care Planned for Mandeville
24-7 EMERGENCY CARE PLANNED FOR MANDEVILLE
COVINGTON LA - St. Tammany Parish Hospital announced plans to open an offsite emergency department this fall.
The facility at 2929 Hwy 190, Mandeville, will provide residents with closer access to emergency care and quicker integration into St. Tammany Parish Hospital systems.
“Adding this emergency option in Mandeville 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. “Once it opens, the Mandeville emergency department will be available 24/7/365, just like the main campus in Covington.”
The Mandeville location will be a full-service emergency facility able to treat emergent health situations including heart attack and stroke. It will have onsite diagnostics and access to specialists including Ochsner vascular neurologists via TeleStroke.
Staff at the Mandeville emergency department will be St. Tammany Parish Hospital employees. Experienced professionals interested in joining the care team can apply at STPH.org/careers. The board-certified emergency medicine specialists providing physician services onsite will be the same trusted physician group 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.
