A Partner of Ochsner Health
Since 2014, Ochsner Health and St. Tammany Health System (STHS) have been working together to provide residents of western St. Tammany Parish comprehensive, integrated and innovative care.
Through our long-term strategic partnership with STHS, we are reducing healthcare costs 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 also led to increases in patient safety and telemedicine consultations, as well as an increase in transfers from St. Tammany Parish Hospital to Ochsner for patients with specialized care needs.
Ochsner neurosurgeons and neurologists work collaboratively with a multidisciplinary team at STHS as part of a comprehensive neuroscience program that delivers specialized neurology and neurosurgery. STHS expanded operating room capacity and developed a dedicated neurology intensive care unit, the only one on the Northshore.
With the addition of leading Ochsner cardiologists, cardiovascular surgeons and electrophysiology services onsite, STHS provides the most comprehensive and highest level of cardiac care in the area.
We offer critical intervention and therapies that reduce the devastating effects of a stroke thanks to the Ochsner CareConnect 360 Telestroke Program.
