At Heart Hospital of Lafayette we're changing the way cardiovascular care is provided. We're making it more personal and less scary. We're achieving better outcomes and outstanding patient satisfaction. We're an entire hospital focused on heart disease. Specially designed, equipped and staffed to keep the heart healthy and treat it when it's not. We have a Heart Emergency Center that stands prepared around the clock. We are an angioplasty center, which is important to know in the event of a heart-related emergency.
Our approach to care and service is a little different. Every patient is assigned a room at admission, and that room becomes home throughout their stay, even after surgery. In a typical hospital you may come in contact with 60 or more caregivers before you go home. Here, a patient care team, usually made up of six to eight clinicians, will be assigned to you and follow you for the duration of your stay. This promotes bonding and continuity of care.
Patient-focused care is a powerful way to ensure that care is swift, responsive and accurate. It elicits better results. It promotes a feeling of safety and security. It fosters healing.
And you can find it at Heart Hospital of Lafayette. The Heart Hospital.Here are some more examples of how we are going to make your hospital experience better:
- Each patient room is private and equipped to meet the needs of heart and vascular patients.
- Family members are allowed 24-hour access to the patient whenever possible. A sleeper bed has been incorporated into every room to accommodate an overnight visitor.
- Nursing pods are located near each patient room and our nurse-to-patient ratio is one of the best in the country. This means someone will be nearby when you need help.
- The floor plan of the hospital is simple and easy to navigate. Family members can find their way around the hospital with confidence.
