St. James Parish Hospital is a community hospital and we take this responsibility very seriously. We consistently work to not only expand our own services and help patients in need of quality care, but we also support the River Region through sponsorships and active involvement in health improvement organizations, committees, and events.
We have contributed millions of dollars in investments and improvements in your community hospital and provided millions of dollars in uncompensated care. Please view the following reports for a complete summary of St. James Parish Hospital’s ongoing efforts to support our community.
