With cardiovascular disease and stroke as the leading cause of death in Louisiana, quality of care in these areas is more important than ever.
Recently The Joint Commission, in conjunction with the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association, officially recognized Our Lady of the Lake with Advanced Certification for Primary Stroke Centers.
This designation is the first of its kind in the Baton Rouge area and demonstrates excellent evidence-based quality care, patient safety and favorable outcomes for heart and stroke patients. This certification helps patients easily identify OLOL as one of quality that has surpassed numerous goals in the treatment of stroke.
