St. Tammany Parish Hospital Emergency Department is a Level 3 Trauma Center and is an accredited stroke and chest pain center. Our department provides the broadest range of services for emergency care including after-hours care, heart and stroke care, pediatric emergency care, diagnostic testing, and access to specialists. St. Tammany Parish Hospital offers two emergency departments in the service district.
