A New Approach to Cardiovascular Care

Imagine an entire hospital focused on heart disease care and prevention with a Heart Emergency Center open 24/7. Imagine a hospital that achieves better outcomes and patient satisfaction by making heart care more personal and less intimidating. Imagine a hospital specially designed, equipped and staffed to keep your heart healthy and provide treatment when it's not. We've created that hospital — Heart Hospital of Lafayette.

Heart Hospital of Lafayette is changing the way cardiovascular care is provided, bringing patient-focused cardiac care to Acadiana. Swift, responsive and accurate, patient-focused care promotes a feeling of safety and security, fosters healing and ensures better results. We believe this approach is why Heart Hospital of Lafayette is rated one of the nation's Top 50 Cardiovascular Hospitals by Thomson Reuters, and why we continue to win awards and recognition for our commitment to patient outcomes and excellence in cardiac care. Remember that it's easier to perform preventative treatment on a heart versus waiting until something bad happens. If you're showing any signs that your heart isn't functioning normally, then be on the safe side and come in.
