About SJPH

Please be reassured that, here, we are people helping other people and often through very difficult times. We constantly make strides to help make you feel more welcome, comfortable and secure here at your hometown hospital.

Our vision is to unite the parish by being the community’s first choice for all health and wellness needs by leading innovations to make care more convenient, comprehensive, coordinated and advanced in order to offer the very best value. This goal drives us to continually assess the needs of our area in order to bring in more technology, services and physicians so that our community can take advantage of the best healthcare, close to home. 

I hope that you will experience caring from the heart while you are at St. James Parish Hospital. It is important to me that our patients and family members trust that they will be provided the highest quality care in a safe environment. I want you to see for yourself that we are “large enough to serve, small enough to care”.

Warmest Regards,

MaryEllen Pratt, CEO
