St. James Parish Hospital’s Emergency Department is directed by a Board-Certified Emergency Medicine Physician and is staffed by experienced Registered Nurses, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our ER offers shorter wait times and the personalized care and compassion small hospitals can provide in combination with the skill and training you can expect to find in larger hospitals. Our ER nurses and physicians are trained in Advanced Cardiac Life Support, Pediatric Advanced Life Support and Trauma Care.
In addition, our ER offers the latest Telestroke Technology, which is advanced equipment that can remotely send vital information obtained from stroke patients to a Neurologist at Ochsner Medical Center. This instantly allows the Neurologist to interact with local medical staff to assess, diagnose and deliver treatment orders—delivering faster care following a stroke.
