How Lourdes Cardiology became a nationally recognized heart program delivering world-class patient care

Employing physicians – making them a seamless part of the hospital – was a daring idea in 2011, but Lourdes Cardiology had conviction. We knew that a true partnership between doctors and hospital administration would create an environment where innovation flourished and drive the quality of our care to even greater heights. Acquiring two of the largest practices in the region, we became one of the first health systems in the country, and the first in our region, to create this unique alignment with cardiologists. 

Our co-management model has brought together almost 100 cardiologists, cardiovascular surgeons, electrophysiologists, advanced practice nurses and cardiac anesthesiologists to deliver the best patient outcomes and experiences. In just a few years, our cardiovascular program has grown to the largest in the Delaware Valley. Our rapid heart attack response times are on par with the nationally known U.S. academic medical centers. And our primary affiliate hospital, Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center, has been consistently ranked among the nation’s finest cardiac programs. At multiple convenient locations across South Jersey, our cardiovascular experts are delivering world-class care, right here in your community.
