Heart Hospital and Louisiana Medical Center provides acute inpatient and outpatient services to patients in three Louisiana parishes and southern Mississippi counties.

The acquisition allows CCG to establish a national network of cardiovascular care delivery systems.

CCG plans to invest capital to upgrade the hospital’s clinical and information technology systems to built a Cardiovascular Center of Excellence.

Cardiovascular Care Group chairman Harry Jacobson said they are committed to work with a multidisciplinary team of physicians, nurses, and other health professionals to deliver patient-centric and evidence-based care to individuals who are at risk or who have already developed manifestations of cardiovascular disease.

"Through our model of integration and alignment with cardiovascular physicians we plan to build on the already solid clinical reputation of Louisiana Medical Center and Heart Hospital," Jacobson said.
