Our Lady of the Lake has expanded resources for heart patients in Ascension Parish. The hospital was joined by Most Reverend Robert Muench, Bishop of Baton Rouge for the blessing and dedication of the new Our Lady of the Lake Heart & Vascular Center Outpatient Catheterization Lab at St. Elizabeth Hospital.

Our Lady of the Lake completes 300 heart procedures each year for residents of Ascension Parish. With the addition of the Our Lady of the Lake Outpatient Catheterization Lab at St. Elizabeth Hospital residents can now plan to have their procedures close to home.

Our Lady of the Lake Outpatient Catheterization Lab at St. Elizabeth Hospital is open Monday through Friday for scheduled procedures only. The Cath Lab at St. Elizabeth greatly enhances our ability to diagnose cardiac and vascular conditions – from the simplest to the most complex, and helps meet an ever-growing need for sophisticated care. Using advanced technology, our team of physicians and highly skilled staff work together to perform the necessary test to accurately diagnose heart conditions. The team will be able to diagnose and treat vascular conditions.
