St. Tammany Health System Named Among Best Workplaces in New Orleans Area

St. Tammany Health System has been named one of New Orleans CityBusiness’ Best Places to Work in New Orleans for 2022.

“This recognition is no accident,” said St. Tammany Health System President and CEO Joan Coffman, FACHE. “Rather, it is the result of a concerted effort by health system leadership to build a workplace culture centered on compassion and collegiality. 

“This award is gratifying beyond words,” Coffman said. “We’re a ‘best workplace’ because we have the best workforce, period, full-stop. Our colleagues have proven that every day of our COVID-19 journey.”

St. Tammany Health System, founded in 1954 as St. Tammany Parish Hospital, employs nearly 2,700 people.

To be considered for the Best Workplaces recognition, companies had to have a facility in the New Orleans area, have at least 10 employees working in the eligible areas, and be in business a minimum of one year. 

Companies will be recognized in the Dec. 16, 2022, issue of New Orleans CityBusiness.
