10/24/2013SMH unveils radical new ER, comprehensive new SMH Heart Center on Oct. 28
 

On Oct. 28, Slidell Memorial Hospital will unveil to the community the new Emergency Room and the new SMH Heart Center, which take up the two floors of the new wing of the hospital built with the support of area residents who approved a $25 million bond renewal to finance the construction.

The all-private room cardiac facility is on the second floor. It has 38 private rooms and improves local cardiac care through more efficient design, state-of-the-art cardiac cath labs, advanced patient monitoring system and care being delivered by one continuous team from "door to discharge.” A second phase will finalize the Heart Center concept, by relocating all other cardiac services in other areas of the hospital into the area formerly occupied by the old emergency department. When the second phase is completed early next year, all cardiac services will be physically centralized, officials said. The final result will be a specialized heart hospital within a full-service acute care hospital.
