Awards & Recognition

Measuring Our Quality by Accolades

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.

“We are honored to be singled out in these ways,” STPH President / CEO Patti Ellish says, "but it's really the people who make us what we are. There's a feeling of family here, and we believe the high marks we earn stem directly from our commitment to our employees and our collective commitment to our patients."
