LULING — Cardiovascular Institute of the South and St. Charles Parish Hospital, in conjunction with the River Region Chamber of Commerce, hosted a grand opening Thursday for the new state-of-the-art catheterization laboratory facility and world-class cardiovascular center located at 1057 Paul Maillard Road, Suite D 1900 in Luling.

CIS and St. Charles Parish Hospital first partnered in March 2013 to provide a full range of cardiology services to the community.

The new cath lab allows CIS and STCH to perform interventional procedures to treat heart disease and diagnose heart conditions.

Heart attack patients can now be treated at the local hospital as well, saving precious time and muscle.

Additionally, the CIS Luling clinic, which was previously located in another suite of the hospital, operates five days a week providing ultrasound, nuclear, and treadmill services.
