Slidell Memorial Hospital Celebrates Groundbreaking

Congratulations to our partners Slidell Memorial Hospital, Ochsner Health, and design partners Sizeler Thompson Brown Architects on the groundbreaking for the new SMH Surgical Services and Patient Care Tower

This new 3-story building is a $36 million project that will include seven new operating rooms on the second floor and an entire floor of negative pressure rooms, like those used for COVID patients and other infectious diseases. The first floor will house engineering and other services that are currently in a warehouse building on the site that would be torn down to accommodate the new building.

The expanded facilities will also enable Slidell Memorial to offer a full range of surgical services to breast cancer patients who now must go elsewhere for reconstructive surgery
