Important Information about Mary Bird Perkins in Covington
Since 1998, Mary Bird Perkins has provided high-quality radiation oncology treatment, diagnostic imaging and vital support services for Northshore residents.
About a decade ago the Cancer Center began partnering with St. Tammany Health System (STHS) to provide comprehensive, patient-focused cancer treatment services. We were informed by STHS officials that the organization will support an Ochsner plan to build a separate cancer center in Covington. However, we determined that our mission to provide quality cancer care to the Northshore community is best served by remaining independent in our current location on the STHS campus.
This in no way impacts Mary Bird Perkins’ dedication to the Covington community. We will remain in the same location with the same doctors and clinicians you have come to know and trust. And you can rest assured that we will continue working closely with other cancer care physicians, regardless of their affiliation.
We will share updates throughout this transition. In the meantime, feel free to reach out to us with any questions or feedback via a dedicated information line at (985) 276-6840.
