An overnight stay in the hospital is never easy, but our patient-centered care approach eases the stress on patients and their families. All private rooms, designed to function at every level of care, dramatically reduce patient transfer within the hospital. Twenty-four-hour visiting allow family members to assist in recovery and rehabilitation. And comprehensive patient and family education is offered, providing a greater understanding of heart disease, recovery and future home care needs. Communication between physicians, patients and family members is ongoing, and one of the reasons for our high patient satisfaction rating.
Quality care sets Lafayette General apart, particularly because we have a full range of specialists on call at the hospital. So in addition to outstanding cardiologists and cardiovascular surgeons, LGMC has pulmonologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, nephrologists, and many more specialists on hand should complications arise. We have specialized critical care teams, with nurses and respiratory therapists who take preventative action before a patient becomes critical. Our experience as Lafayette's leading heart care provider is key to the outstanding care we provide.
