Clinical Services

St. James Parish Hospital has been serving the River Parishes and surrounding areas since 1955. Our facility was designed specifically with your healthcare needs in mind. Here people who live, work, and enjoy our community have access to the excellent, cutting-edge healthcare you would expect to find in a much larger city, but conveniently located close to home.

Because we are truly large enough to serve and small enough to care, we offer a wide range of medical services and we are continually expanding our capabilities to better meet your needs. In addition, many of our departments offer extended hours to fit your schedule.
