Awards & Recognition




St. Tammany Parish Hospital has earned distinction at local, regional and national levels for quality, leadership, employee satisfaction and patient satisfaction. While no other hospital in the region can compare to the achievements of your own community hospital, none of these achievements can compare to the endorsement of our own neighbors, employees and physicians. Overwhelmingly, these groups say they would recommend St. Tammany Parish Hospital to their loved ones.

St. Tammany Parish Hospital is the only Northshore Hospital on the 2014-15 U.S. News and World Report Best Hospitals list. STPH is one of only two of the nearly 40 hospitals in the New Orleans metro area; fourth in the state for quality and safety and high performing in nephrology.

U.S. News’ Best Hospitals rankings are based on mortality rates for patients who represent especially challenging cases, on patient safety and on other measures of performance that can be assessed using hard data in addition to an annual reputational survey of physicians, who are asked to name hospitals they consider the best in their specialty for difficult cases.

Patient safety metrics now account for 10 percent of each hospital’s overall score, in most specialties – twice as much as in past years. The role of hospital reputation, as determined through a national survey of medical specialists, diminished by 5 percentage points. Research organization RTI International, in Research Triangle Park, N.C., conducted the physician survey and produced the methodology and national rankings under contract with U.S. News. Click here for the full methodology.
