The St. Tammany Hospital Guild has been a part of the hospital family for over 50 years. This organization is made up of community members, both men and women, who have a very strong love of the area and a desire to help their hospital and fellow citizens.
The Guild donates funds to the hospital through the Gift Shop. They also provide Nursing and Allied Health Scholarships for the fall and spring semesters each year. These scholarships are awarded to deserving hospital employees who are furthering their education in medical fields.
The Guild has approximately 115 members who donate 25,000 hours each year in 20 hospital departments.
You can join this special organization and enjoy the satisfaction of knowing that you truly can make a difference. For more information, contact Shirley Primes at 985-898-4008.
