Mission, Vision & Values

Like most hospitals, we are committed to service, safety, professionalism, and privacy but we take pride in offering a special level of care that only a small hospital can provide.

Our size allows us to treat our patients like family and offer an environment that truly feels like home. We believe it is important to offer service with a smile and get to know our patients on a more personal, compassionate level.


St. James Parish Hospital is committed to enhancing health and wellbeing for all.


St. James Parish Hospital will champion the pursuit of health by embracing the physical, social and emotional wellbeing of its people.


Compassion: We serve with empathy and sincerely support patients, families and our fellow team members through active listening and always being considerate of one another’s feelings and needs.

Inclusivity: We provide services in a fair, equitable and unbiased way to ensure access for all, strive to meet community needs and offer an accepting environment of belonging where differences are embraced and respectfulness shines.

Integrity: We lead with honesty in every situation, act with high ethical standards and commit to doing what’s right even when no one is looking.

Quality: We aim for excellence in all that we do and consistently offer patient-centered, safe, efficient and effective care.

Agility: We remain focused on both community needs and the everchanging healthcare environment so that we can quickly and effectively adapt to change—both embracing new opportunities and overcoming challenges.

Stewardship: We are good stewards of hospital and public resources by leading initiatives that enhance the wellbeing of our hospital and community, allowing us to continue to offer high quality services to future generations.
