About The Louis & Peaches Owen Heart Hospital

Welcome to the Louis & Peaches Owen Heart Hospital—the first and only heart hospital in the region. Our program builds upon more than 25 years of pioneering heart care for East Texans and launches a new era in improved cardiac care and patient safety.

This new approach to heart care incorporates the latest technologies and processes, while also including healing concepts and patient-centered features that involve the family along with medical staff to ensure the best possible outcomes.

In addition to multiple recognitions, awards, designations and certifications earned over the years, in July 2018, the Louis and Peaches Owen Heart Hospital - Tyler was recognized as the first recipient of the HeartCARE Center: National Distinction of Excellence by the American College of Cardiology based on a demonstrated commitment to comprehensive, high-quality culture and cardiovascular care through accreditations and ongoing registry reporting. To receive the HeartCARE Center distinction, the team met a set of criteria including participation in at least two ACC Accreditation Services programs, NCDR registries and targeted quality improvement campaigns designed to help hospitals and institutions close gaps in guideline-based care.
