These are exciting days at the Louis & Peaches Owen Heart Hospital! We’ve opened the doors to a facility that is unmatched in East Texas. More heart procedures are performed here than in any other east Texas facility. In addition, the Louis & Peaches Owen Heart Hospital along with Mother Frances Hospital can claim many notable achievements:

• More than 638,000 cardiac procedures
• More than 13,000 open-heart surgeries
• More than 60,000 cardiac catheterizations
• More than 16,000 interventional cardiac stents
• Nearly 12,000 pacemaker/electrophysiology procedures
• More than 200 robotic-assisted heart surgeries
• First Intensive Care Unit in east Texas
• First in the region to perform permanent pacemaker implantation
• First open-heart surgery suite in east Texas
• First comprehensive Heart Institute in the region
• One of the first in the U.S. to introduce clot-busting drugs
• First in east Texas with advanced lipid testing
• First in the U.S. with total EKG networking capabilities
• First in east Texas with accredited Chest Pain Center
• First magnetic assisted complex interventional cardiac procedure in the world was performed in the TMF Heart Institute
• First robotic heart bypass surgery in east Texas performed at TMF Heart Institute
• First institution in east Texas with da Vinci, the world's most advanced surgical robotic system
• First in east Texas to implement CODE STEMI protocol for rapid assessment and treatment of heart attack victims with ST-elevation myocardial infarction
