Our Lady of Lourdes formed a partnership with Heart Hospital of Lafayette after recognizing the outstanding achievements that this facility has made in cardiac care. With a shared focus on patient-centered care, advanced technology and trusted physicians, Lourdes and Heart Hospital are essentially able to offer patients the highest level of health care in two locations.
As a Cardiovascular Center of Excellence, Heart Hospital of Lafayette has set national benchmarks in the treatment of congestive heart failure and in patient satisfaction - and the hospital's high level of performance far exceeds clinical standards. In addition, Heart Hospital of Lafayette is the only hospital in Louisiana with a Joint Commission accredited program for the treatment of congestive heart failure.
Heart Hospital of Lafayette is also the only hospital in the region that offers a chest pain network - which was created by forging relationships with emergency departments in outlying communities to share best practices, improve care and increase access to advanced treatments and technology.
