Our Achievements:

  • We are the only Acadiana hospital to receive the American Heart Association’s Get With The Guidelines® – Stroke quality achievement award for 10 consecutive years. In addition, we received the American Heart Association’s Target: Stroke℠ Elite award for meeting specific criteria that reduces the time between an eligible patient’s arrival at the hospital and treatment with the clot-buster alteplase.
  • We’re home to a congestive heart failure program accredited by The Joint Commission.
  • We are a recipient of the Press Ganey Human Experience Guardian of Excellence Award® and CMS 5-star rating for patient experience.
  • Our chest pain network is the only one of its kind in Acadiana, created by forging relationships with emergency departments in outlying communities to share best practices, improve care and increase access to advanced treatments and technology.
  • We are the first in Lafayette to offer, and the first in the region to be certified by the American College of Cardiology to provide, the minimally invasive TransCarotid Artery Revascularization (TAVR) procedure for valve repair and replacement.
  • We are the first hospital in Acadiana to offer the Micra™ pacemaker. The size of a vitamin pill, the Micra is capable of regulating heartbeats just like bigger models. Implanting the device reduces the risk of infection and allows a much shorter recovery time than a traditional pacemaker.

  • MitraClip™ Therapy

    This less-invasive treatment option is available for heart disease patients too ill for open-heart surgery. The MitraClip™ device is guided through a vein in the leg to the heart, where it is clipped to reverse mitral regurgitation, the disease in which a heart valve doesn’t close properly, causing blood to leak backward.

    The procedure allows for a shorter recovery time and can help patients who otherwise must rely on medication to manage their symptoms without fully treating mitral regurgitation.

  • Nationally Certified TAVR Program

    In 2021, Our Lady of Lourdes Heart Hospital became home to Acadiana’s first nationally certified Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) program. The American College of Cardiology recognized the Heart Hospital for its expertise in the care of patients undergoing the TAVR procedure.

    The procedure uses a catheter inserted in a small incision site to deliver a replacement valve when an existing aortic valve is damaged or not working properly. The minimally invasive procedure can help patients who may not otherwise be able to undergo open surgery.

  • WATCHMAN™ Device for AFib Patients

    Our Lady of Lourdes Heart Hospital treats patients with atrial fibrillation, or AFib, using the WATCHMAN™ Device. This minimally invasive procedure closes off an area of the heart called the left atrial appendage (LAA), which is often the area where harmful blood clots form. By closing off the LAA, risk of stroke may be reduced and patients are able to stop taking long-term blood thinners over time.
  • TCAR Procedure for Stroke Prevention

    Our Lady of Lourdes Heart Hospital is the first in Lafayette to offer an innovative new treatment for patients at risk for stroke due to blockages in the neck arteries known as carotid artery disease. The minimally invasive procedure, called TransCarotid Artery Revascularization, or TCAR, utilizes a new FDA-approved neuroprotection system that temporarily reverses blood flow in the artery during the procedure. Dangerous bits of plaque and blood clots that could dislodge and otherwise travel to the brain and cause a stroke are safely diverted away while a dedicated transcarotid stent is inserted to open and stabilize the blockage.
