STHS said Easter was a particularly joyous day this year.
On that day, for the first time in 13 months, St. Tammany Health System had zero patients in COVID care. They admitted one new COVID patient since then, but they are filled with optimism to have seen zero even for one day.
STHS President and CEO Joan Coffman credits this wonderful milestone to local residents and STHS colleagues all doing their part. She said from residents taking personal responsibility to her colleagues ceaselessly putting themselves on the front lines of this healthcare challenge, she is grateful to everyone for their commitment, sacrifice and dedication. Coffman added that getting vaccinated, wearing a mask and isolating when we’re ill truly makes a difference.
St. Tammany Health System continues to schedule COVID-19 vaccination appointments through MyChart or 985-898-4001 for Louisiana residents. Locations include Express Care in front of Flower Estates and the Cordes Pavilion on Bootlegger Rd.
