Lakeview Regional Medical Center, a campus of Tulane Medical Center, announced the recent appointment of Hannah Fowler, RN as the new outpatient surgery manager. Fowler has worked in the outpatient surgery department at Lakeview Regional since May 2021.

"Hannah is self-motivated and always delivers a high level of service and support to her patients," said Marc Junot, associate administrator. "Her team-oriented approach to leadership makes Hannah an excellent choice for this very busy department. We are thrilled to promote her to this position."

Fowler brings with her seven years of experience working with pediatrics and as a cardiac stepdown nurse. She holds a Bachelor of Science in nursing from Northwestern State University in Natchitoches and is certified in pediatric advanced life support, basic life support, and advanced cardiac life support.

Lakeview Regional Medical Center provides both inpatient and outpatient surgical services. The healthcare team works closely with patients and families to address concerns and prepare the patient for surgery. They utilize Enhanced Surgical Recovery (ESR) protocol for all surgeries in the multi-specialty facility. ESR is a proven, research-based partnership in which patients can take a more active role with their clinical care team and help improve overall patient experience and surgical outcomes. Benefits of ESR include eating sooner after surgery, shorter hospital stay, reduction of nausea, faster recovery, and appropriate management of pain.
