Visit our heart center in Lafayette
We have been the region’s heart leader for decades. Our Heart Center at Franciscan St. Elizabeth Health - Lafayette East allows us to raise the bar even higher by consolidating all heart services in the South Building. This makes everything more convenient, efficient and much faster.
The Emergency Care Center is now just steps away from two state-of-the-art cath labs to get you care as quickly as possible. Surgery is in close proximity offering eight operating rooms including one designed especially for open heart procedures.
With designated cardiac care units and numerous procedures, Franciscan St. Elizabeth has developed a continuum of heart care.
We are also continually working with physicians and specialty groups such as St.Vincent Medical Group, CorVasc, Franciscan Physician Network Cardiology and St.Vincent Heart Center to care for your heart.
