About our Community & Hospital

Hospital Lobby Covington is located on the north shore of Lake Pontchartrain, 45 minutes from historic New Orleans and within hours of the Gulf Coast beaches. It is positioned in one of the fastest developing areas in the United States – and for good reasons!

Families appreciate the strength of the St. Tammany Parish School System, which is regarded as one of the finest in Louisiana. It offers perfect beauty for outdoor enthusiasts and small, friendly communities that project a genuinely cordial, safe and comfortable atmosphere. The ability to live and work in this area is what many residents seek!

St. Tammany Parish Hospital is a fully accredited not-for-profit community hospital. We are the facility of choice in the community and surrounding areas as verified by our patient, physician and employee satisfaction surveys. As the first hospital in Covington, we opened our doors Dec. 1, 1954, as a small, rural facility with 30 beds. Since that time, we have grown to a full-service, 237-bed acute-care facility. 

Today, St. Tammany Parish Hospital is the largest hospital in the parish. Over the next several years, a series of improvements will grow the hospital into a dynamic regional medical center.
