Your Emergency, Our Specialty
Be seen by a Board-Certified Emergency Physician and Certified Emergency Nurses quicker than you thought possible, 24/7/365. At Slidell Memorial Hospital, the best emergency professionals in the business will be taking care of you. Our emergency nursing staff is comprised of 100% registered nurses, many with advanced certifications. And, since SMH is a full-service hospital, we can handle your emergency and all of the ongoing care you will need should you need to be admitted.
Slidell Memorial Hospital's Emergency Services Department has doubled its size, growing from 14 beds to 31 beds. It features a radical design concept, with private patient treatment rooms. SMH has treated more patients than all other healthcare facilities in our area of Louisiana combined.
We have implemented an initiative to immediately place ambulatory patients in a room following rapid triage, where they are seen by a physician and nurse team to move patients through the Emergency Room efficiently.
The ED also benefits from expertise and operational support through collaboration with TeamHealth, a nationally recognized administrative healthcare management company, in keeping with the hospital's commitment to high levels of satisfaction of all emergency department customers. There simply is no substitute for experience and expertise when life's emergencies present.
