Our newly renovated, 5,000-square foot cardiology department was designed specifically to offer the only cardiac catheterization lab facility for residents between Lake Charles and Lafayette. Jennings American Legion Hospital provides a modernized facility to local patients who would otherwise be forced to travel 40-45 minutes to receive cardiac care, testing and treatment. Our cardiology department is equipped to provide diagnostic coronary angiography, nuclear stress testing and echocardiograms.
Our Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation facility is equipped for patients who have experienced an MI, coronary artery bypass grafting, stable angina, PTCA/stent, valve replacement, heart transplants and COPD. The physician-supervised program at JALH utilizes state-of-the-art telemetry monitoring to help patients grow strong physically and to assist with lifestyle modification to facilitate the most successful recovery. The facility staff includes a skilled registered nurse and a registered dietitian who is available for one-on-one counseling
