As a 229-bed acute care community hospital located in the heart of Slidell, La., we provide access to the latest treatments and technology and expert physicians.
SMH brought one-stop, world-class cancer treatment close to home to Slidell and Gulf South residents. SMH began construction in August 2009 of its Regional Cancer Center that centralizes all cancer treatment and support services in a new state-of-the-art facility. The new center is located next to Founders Medical Building on Robert Blvd. directly across Gause Blvd. from the hospital. Its location within close proximity to the hospital gives patients convenient access to both inpatient and outpatient services.
SMH opened its doors on Nov. 15, 1959, one day earlier than expected due to an accident that required the services of the brand new Emergency Department. The next day, the official opening of the hospital, SMH had its first official patient, a pregnant woman who gave birth to a baby boy. Today, the hospital delivers between 800 and 1,000 babies per year.
Since those first days SMH has consistently been the first hospital on the Northshore to offer key services and technological advancements to patients. From the first open heart surgery, the first cardiac stents, the first brain surgery, and one of the first Image Guided Radiation Therapy units in the world, SMH has provided cutting-edge technology, making it a gem among all health care institutions in South Louisiana.
