The Heart Hospital of Lafayette (Louisiana) has retained FaithSearch Partners to manage its search for a new Administrator/Chief Operating Officer (COO). The hospital, affiliated with Our Lady of Lourdes Regional Medical Center, is recognized as being one of the “Top 50 Cardiovascular Hospitals” in the nation.
Ivan Bartolome and Joe Pettigrew are leading the firm’s search initiative. “The Heart Hospital of Lafayette has grown tremendously in the eight years since it opened,” said Bartolome. “It has been widely recognized for clinical excellence and patient satisfaction. A new Administrator can continue to build on these successes. There are still opportunities for the Hospital to grow and expand its services in Lafayette and the surrounding communities. Selecting the right leader at this juncture is critical for the hospital.”
“It is important that the new Administrator is capable of building on the hospital’s momentum and can expand its reach and continue to enhance each patient’s experience,” added Pettigrew. “We are looking for an experienced healthcare executive, with a servant heart, who will integrate all areas of service and lead the Heart Hospital of Lafayette toward continued excellence and growth.”
