The hospital’s commitment to deliver world-class healthcare close to home and our partnerships with Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center and Ochsner Health System combine to elevate the level of care available in St. Tammany Cancer Center, despite the challenges of healthcare reform.
St. Tammany Cancer Center is the new name for the cancer center at 1203 S. Tyler Street, Covington. The change coincides with completion of a construction project to expand the center, increasing space for patient care, adding chemo-infusion lab and pharmacy and increasing patient access to multidisciplinary teams, cancer subspecialists, research and clinical trials.
St. Tammany Parish Hospital hosting these two trusted providers continues the center’s commitment for world-class cancer care close to home. Services available through St. Tammany Cancer Center include radiation therapy, chemotherapy, PET CT imaging, clinical research trials, nurse navigation patient support services, community screenings and education. The center’s multidisciplinary approach includes surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, pathologists, radiologists and other specialists building upon the center’s proven highly personalized approach to patient care.

Accreditation by the NAPBC is only given to those centers that have voluntarily committed to provide the highest level of quality breast care and that undergo a rigorous evaluation process and review of their performance. During the survey process, the center must demonstrate compliance with standards established by the NAPBC for treating women who are diagnosed with the full spectrum of breast disease. The standards include proficiency in the areas of: center leadership, clinical management, research, community outreach, professional education, and quality improvement. A breast center that achieves NAPBC accreditation has demonstrated a firm commitment to offer its patients every significant advantage in their battle against breast disease.
