Radiology Services – 225.258.5953
Hometown Hospitality with Big City Technology
St. James Parish Hospital knows that quality healthcare can only be provided by the most competent staff with access to the latest cutting-edge equipment. Our advanced, 100% digital Radiology Department rivals big-city competitors in diagnostic testing and offers advanced nuclear cancer screenings.
St. James Parish Hospital’s Radiology Department allows you to have the best of both worlds—high-tech equipment and skilled staff like larger hospitals but with the friendly, fast service a small hospital can provide.
We hear often that patients waited weeks for certain tests at other facilities. We may not be "big," but we promise to be convenient. If you have orders and insurance approval for a radiology test, contact us FIRST. You shouldn't have to prolong worry or pain by waiting weeks for a test we can do right away.
In most cases, we can schedule tests such as an MRI, CT Scan or Mammogram within a day or two and if your test is an emergency, we can often accommodate same-day appointments. Ask your physician to have your test done at St. James Parish Hospital. A quicker test means quicker results and quicker relief.
