Lakeview Regional Medical Center, a campus of Tulane Medical Center, has been designated an Aetna Institute of Quality® Cardiac Care Facility for the Cardiac Medical Intervention, Cardiac Rhythm and Cardiac Surgery Program for comprehensive heart and vascular treatment.

Aetna makes information about the quality and cost of health care services available to its members to help them make informed decisions about their health care needs. In line with this goal, Aetna recognizes hospitals and facilities in its network that offer specialized clinical services for certain health conditions. Facilities are selected for consistently delivering evidence-based, safe care.

"It is an honor to receive designation such as this from a insurance provider like Aetna," states Hiral Patel, Chief Executive Officer for Lakeview Regional. "Receiving this recognition tells our patients that we are continually committed to providing the highest standards of care."

In addition to the designation from Aetna, Lakeview Regional has received the American College of Cardiology's NCDR ACTION Registry-GWTG (Get with the Guidelines) Silver Performance Achievement Award and the Heart Center's Cardiovascular Rehabilitation program was recognized for meeting standards and guidelines of the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation program certification.
