Nationally Recognized Care

Lakeview Regional Medical Center is nationally recognized as one of the nation’s top performers on key quality measures by the Joint Commission, the leading accreditor of health care organizations in America. Lakeview Regional Medical Center has achieved high performance based on data reported about evidence-based clinical processes that are shown to improve care for certain conditions, including heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia, surgical care and children’s asthma. Lakeview Regional is the only hospital in the Mandeville and Covington area to have receive this recognition.

Pre-Hospital 12-Lead EKG Technology

Even before a heart attack victim arrives via ambulance at Lakeview Regional's Emergency Department doors, our emergency physicians and cardiologists have already diagnosed the problem. Ambulances are now equipped with the 12-lead EKG, which transmits a full view of the heart to our emergency room physicians. This allows doctors to more quickly diagnose and prepare for incoming heart attack victims. The streamlined process saves time and, therefore, reduces damaged heart muscle.
