Community Outreach

We provide a variety of free educational programs to help you stay healthy.

As your community hospital, you and your family can turn to us for the latest healthcare information and advice. To help you stay well, we provide several free community health programs that cover everything from catching health concerns early to preventing and treating chronic diseases.  

Community Health Programs

Hands-Only CPR

This free training provides a lifesaving skill.

HealthTalk

HealthTalk is a free community service that helps community members stay up-to-date on the latest health news and information. HealthTalks are available to local clubs, churches, community organizations, homeowner groups, businesses and other civic organizations. Contact us at (985) 280-8529 for more information.

HealthWorks: Employee Health + Wellness Program

At Slidell Memorial Hospital, we believe it’s just as important to prevent disease as it is to diagnose and treat it. That’s why we offer HealthWorks, which brings medical expertise, screenings and educational programs directly to your workplace. We can help your employees detect potential health problems early and inspire them to make healthy lifestyle choices. Contact us at (985) 280-8529 for more information.
