    St. Bernard Parish Hospital Hosts Community Leaders Update on Health Care

    St. Bernard Parish Hospital hosted a Community Leader luncheon and presentation led by the hospital's Chief Executive Officer Charles Lindell in late September. More than 45 individuals attended  the event to receive a health care update from the community-owned facility.

    The group meets semi-annually and provides an exchange of information about health services and needs in the community. "We want information about new services, new personnel, hospital accreditations and services to reach those who can provide that information directly to others in the community and these community leaders can help us," said Lindell.  

    "This is a community hospital and we want our residents to be involved and we want to connect with community leaders," he added.  He also noted that strong  public safety, healthcare, education  are the three essential pillars of a community.

    In the presentation, Lindell provided an overview of  community outreach programs that have been provided to area residents in recent months. These include  prevention services, including men's health screenings, stroke screenings, and heart assessment tests, all done at very reasonable rates. Each month a new service is offered. He shared details of the mammography and bone density testing scheduled during October, Breast Cancer Awareness month.

    He noted that the hospital has reached out to communicate its services to business leaders, the Rotary of St. Bernard, Chamber of Commerce leaders, Women's Professional Network, AARP and Nunez Community College faculty, the Recovery Tour, the School Board leaders, Lions Club and other groups. He urged other organizations interested in a presentation and tour to call the hospital administrative office to schedule. The events are held in the conference room of the hospital, on the first floor, adjacent to the Medical Office Building.  

    Lindell reported on the new McKesson Electronic Health Records System which was implemented in July, after months of specialized training. He noted, "This system greatly enhances faster test results for doctors and patients. It improves customer service and assists with efficiency and accuracy,"

    Lindell shared details on the newly opened Rehabilitation Center, the only one in the parish offering physical, speech and occupational therapies and the only one accredited by The Joint Commission.

    There are now 11 therapists on staff in the Center offering services to adults and children. 

    St. Bernard Parish Hospital is a community hospital owned by the citizens of St. Bernard Parish. It has over 100 physicians, comprehensive services and 400 employees. The hospital meets national standards and is accredited by The Joint Commission.
