St. Bernard Parish Hospital’s Med-Surg/Telemetry Unit consists of 32 private patient rooms equipped to take care of a vast array of medical illnesses and heart conditions and provides care to general and orthopedic surgery patients. Every detail of the Med-Surg/Telemetry Unit is designed with patient and family comfort, continuum of care and medical efficiency as primary objectives. Wide hallways, large private rooms, flat screen TVs, pastel wall coverings and softer lighting (where appropriate) provide a higher level of comfort than what is expected in a typical hospital environment.

The mission on the SBPH Med-Surg/Telemetry Unit is to provide excellent, evidence based healthcare within a framework of teamwork and internal cohesiveness; where good communication is always a key component.
