Board of Commissioners

The board is responsible for the quality of the medical care provided by Slidell Memorial Hospital.

St. Tammany Parish Hospital Service District No. 2, doing business as Slidell Memorial Hospital, is governed by a nine-member Board of Commissioners. The board consists of seven members appointed by an appointing authority (comprised of a local legislative delegation) from nominating committee recommendations; the president of the medical staff and one medical staff appointee.

Each board member brings a unique background that is invaluable in guiding SMH.
