—North Oaks Medical Center of Hammond is recognized as one of state’s
top hospitals in the July/August issue of Louisiana Life magazine.
Louisiana Life used medicare.gov reports, based on patient self-reported
experiences, to rank the state’s top hospitals by locality. To be
included, 50 percent or more of the patients queried by Medicare had to
rate the hospital as a 9 or 10 overall.
“The opinions of our patients about their experience at North Oaks
are of tremendous importance to our team,” asserts James E. Cathey
Jr., President/Chief Executive Officer of North Oaks Health System. “We
are proud to be counted among Louisiana’s Top Hospitals and of our
commitment to excellence in patient experiences and quality care.”In
addition to great patient experience ratings, North Oaks also enjoys:
- Composite scores that equal or exceed state and national averages for the
quality of care given to heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia and surgery patients
- Successful quality initiatives focused on stroke care and the prevention
of infections and hospital-acquired conditions.
