Hospital Service District Millage

In collaboration with Hood Memorial Hospital’s service district expansion, an important millage to expand healthcare services for the entire parish of Tangipahoa will be on the March 25 ballot.

Hood Memorial Hospital has been a vital part of our community. As our area continues to grow, it is imperative to have a quality acute care hospital ready to meet the medical needs of the families in central and northern Tangipahoa. This 10-year, 5 mil property assessment is an investment in our future. With this funding, we will be able to grow the exceptional healthcare services we currently provide while expanding and introducing new services and equipment to better care for our local community.

It's an important election, and we encourage you to get the facts. Early voting is Saturday, March 11, through Saturday, March 18, and Election Day is Saturday, March 25.

Every day, Hood Memorial Hospital is Growing Healthcare Close to Home.

Our Plan

Hood Memorial’s future is optimistically designed for a progressive Tangipahoa Parish.  Realizing the evolution of our community, Hood’s leadership team devised a plan to bring the hospital from its stagnant state, to a well-groomed, modernized manifestation of healthcare for the people of area.  This manifestation is needed from the size of our, not intended to grow 1970’s building, to our old and outdated equipment.  We intend to triumph in the race for patient satisfaction; therefore, we recognize the importance of modern and innovative technology.  However, a caterpillar does not transform into a beautiful butterfly overnight, nor does a hospital with little to no extra capital for future projects. Therefore, like all other Hospital Service Districts, we must depend on the goodness of our taxpayers.

Expansion

Our hospital has recently expanded our Service District, allowing our boundaries to realign north to the state line and east to Washington Parish.  Unlike the beautiful butterfly, our hospital cannot undergo such a radical transformation alone; we need the support of the people, organizations and businesses of this community.  We are working closely with the Parish Council to develop a resolution that would satisfy all voters.  This story will be developing within weeks. Our community members always express the need for Hood Memorial to grow and develop the services offered.  Your voices are heard, and we are working to offer “big city” healthcare right here in your backyard.  Our focus and objective is to continue to expand services to make our dreams and your healthcare needs a reality.
