The St. Tammany Parish Hospital Pediatric Unit is a controlled access unit located on the third floor of the main hospital building. We offer all our patients, ages zero to 18, private rooms specially designed with children in mind. Features of the unit include wall toys, a game room and mobile electronic game system. We also have a separate procedure room ensuring that the patient rooms provide a non-threatening environment.

The pediatric unit is staffed with an Advanced Nurse Practitioner and Registered Nurses as well as using a hospitalist program. This unit offers general pediatric care plus pediatric specialists in cardiology, dentistry, endocrinology, orthopedics, pulmonology and neurology.

We coordinate closely with pediatricians throughout the St. Tammany Parish Hospital community and New Orleans region to ensure pediatric patients receive seamless, world-class health care close to home.
