    Aug 25, 2015 By

    In commemoration of the 10th anniversary  of hurricane Katrina, St. Bernard Parish Hospital is participating in the parish’s  Critical Facilities Tour by hosting guided tours of the hospital from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. today, August 25. The public is invited to attend. 

    The tour is open to anyone interested in learning about the hospital’s facility and services.   The tours will begin in the main conference room  of the Medical Office Building, located at 8550 West Judge Perez Drive. 

    Hospital CEO Charles Lindell stated,  “We are proud of our hospital. It was constructed with Community Development Block Grants, Capital Outlay Funds and a Health Resources and Services Administration Grant.  FEMA funds were not available because the previous hospital was a private facility. The current hospital has no relationship with the previous Chalmette General Hospital.”

    The tour will include welcoming remarks by Charles Lindell, CEO and personal stories of staff members who assisted in patient rescue and transfer during the storm. The guided tours will include outpatient and inpatient facilities and services including: Emergency Services, Imaging, Cardiopulmonary, Inpatient units and the new Rehabilitation Center. The hospital has all private rooms which will be viewed on the tour. 

    This is an opportunity to see a facility that was designed for today's state-of-the-art technology and delivery of healthcare,  including more than 100 primary care and specialty physicians and nearly 400 clinical and administrative support staff, added Lindell. The hospital has 49 inpatient beds and  offers  a wide array of inpatient and outpatient services.  St. Bernard Parish Hospital meets national standards and is accredited by The Joint Commission.

    Mace Scott, M.D., Chief of Staff and Director of Emergency Services said, "This hospital provides a safety net for the citizens of St. Bernard, with a state-of-the-art Emergency Room administering specialized care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with certified Emergency Medicine physicians."  The hospital also utilizes the Tulane Medical Telestroke Program for patients in need of emergency stroke care.
