Emergency Department | Emergency Medical Services
Each year we serve thousands of patients with injuries and illnesses ranging from minor to life-threatening. The Emergency Department at St. Charles Parish Hospital provides 24-hour emergency care and treatment to patients of all ages including traumatic injuries and acute medical, surgical or psychiatric emergencies. Under the leadership of the Emergency Services Medical Director, our staff of experienced and highly trained physicians, registered nurses, and support staff provide expert emergency care to help those in need at any time of the day or night. On-call physicians specializing in general surgery, trauma surgery, orthopedics, internal medicine and family practice are available to emergency patients in order to meet their medical needs.
Our physicians and nursing staff coordinate with our EMS staff in order to provide the highest level of emergency services and continuity of care from on-scene response through hospital arrival. Additionally, our emergency department works closely with area industries and employers to meet the specialized needs of its workforce.

A growing community needs a medical facility that expands with it. National trends project that the need for Emergency Services will increase sharply over the next decade. These factors combined with an aging population and reduced psychiatric care options, influenced the commitment of St. Charles Parish Hospital to expand their Emergency Services department. Planning for this facility began in 2005 and ground was broken in 2010.
The new 12,000 square foot Emergency Services facility incorporates the latest recommendations by the Health Care Advisory Board from Washington D.C. The entire building is uniquely designed to enhance the patient’s experience and speed the healing process– from entry time to discharge.
