At St. Tammany Parish Hospital, delivering world-class healthcare close to home is our goal. That means we are committed to attracting and retaining the very best professionals for every position in our hospital system.
We believe the pristine beauty of St. Tammany Parish adds to our attractive compensation package. The hospital is nestled in the heart of Covington on the north shore of Lake Pontchartrain. It is a peaceful, scenic, community-oriented area with an abundance of amenities to suit every taste.
Families appreciate the strength of the St. Tammany Parish School System, which ranks as Louisiana’s finest and hosts a number of federally recognized Presidential Blue Ribbon schools. This success is marked by students’ consistently high scores on national standardized tests.
The Northshore offers the best of both worlds – the comfort of country living with the diversities and attractions of New Orleans, only a lake away.
Simply put, St. Tammany is a great place to work and live.
