Lakeview Regional Medical Center, a campus of Tulane Medical Center, has promoted Ashley Mendelson to the position of Director of Emergency Services, effective May 15, 2022. 

Mendelson has been with Lakeview Regional since 2014 when she served as staff nurse in the emergency department. She successfully completed the prestigious HCA Director Development program and has been serving as Associate Director of Emergency Services since November 2021.

“Ashley has contributed greatly to the success of our emergency department,” said Jennifer Schmidt, RN, Lakeview Regional Chief Nursing Officer. “I look forward to her leadership and future accomplishments at Lakeview.”

Lakeview Regional is the only hospital on the Northshore with Level II trauma designation. A Level II trauma center has the capability of treating any type of trauma patient with the same clinical capabilities as a Level I trauma center, without the need to conduct research. This designation offers Northshore residents with more timely access to critical trauma care.
