A Partner of Ochsner Health

In 2016, Ochsner Health and Slidell Memorial Hospital (SMH) formed a partnership to provide residents of the Northshore comprehensive, integrated and innovative care.

Through our long-term strategic partnership with Slidell, we are making care more affordable for patients while improving quality and increasing local access to care.

More patients are being treated closer to home, while still having access to the nationally recognized specialists and the depth and breadth of care Ochsner is known for. Our collaborations have led to decreases in patient complications and better outcomes. Some services from Slidell Memorial Hospital - East have been moved to Slidell Memorial to provide a higher level of service.

Some of the new and expanded services at Slidell Memorial that have resulted from our partnership include:

  • TeleStroke, TelePsych, TeleICU and other TeleHealth Services
  • Pediatric subspecialties
  • Interventional cardiology
  • Chemo infusion
  • Inpatient rehabilitation
  • Weight loss clinic
  • Sleep services

By sharing best practices, integrating our technology, building a cross-organizational clinical teamwork model and making joint investment in new physicians and programs, we are able to continue to expand patient services and resources in the region with a relentless focus on quality and value.
