Slidell Memorial is the most experienced in cardiac services on the Northshore, consistently being first to offer new, innovative services in cardiac care.SMH's new Cardiac facility has 38 private rooms; advanced cardiac cath labs and patient monitoring system; and will feature a comprehensive, continuous-team care protocol to speed delivery of services in a patient-centered, coordinated and cost-effective manner.
As a proud local sponsor of the Northshore
Start! campaign, we encourage the community to be Heart Smart.
In 2004, SMH became the first facility in East St. Tammany Parish to offer multi-slice CT scanning, which provides highly detailed images of the circulatory system and internal organs.
The 16-slice scanner and its new 64-slice counterpart give SMH physicians and patients access to potentially life-saving technologies such as CT angiography, CT fluoroscopy and calcium scoring, all non-invasive procedures that can detect problems early, when they are most treatable.
The 64-slice scanner is fast enough to create a clear, stop-action image of a beating heart while requiring nothing more invasive than an IV injection in the patient's arm.
