Our Quality Measures

Scores for quality, safety and patient experience are readily available from the federal government’s Hospital Compare website, The Joint Commission and Healthgrades.

The Joint Commission and U.S. Department of Health & Human Services agree on specific measures performed by your hospital which can improve the outcomes of your health. The links you see to the left of this panel under the heading, "Our Quality Measures" will help you to determine how St. Tammany Parish Hospital compares with other hospitals in the area, the state and the nation. We are proud to lead in quality, safety, patient satisfaction and employee satisfaction, year after year.

In 2011, the Association for Professionals in Infection Control (APIC) recognized the exceptional work STPH Infection Prevention staff were doing to eradicate infection regionwide. The STPH "Bug Team" received national recognition in the APIC Prevention Strategist Magazine, summer issue.
