Cardiovascular Institute of the South is one of the nation's most respected groups of cardiologists, representing nearly every specialty in heart and vascular medicine.
While most leading medical centers are located in a single facility within a large city, CIS and its staff of nearly 500 dedicated team members and 35 physicians
bring comprehensive cardiovascular care close to home by serving patients in 13 locations
throughout south Louisiana.
The continued growth of CIS facilities is evidence of the institute's dynamic commitment to bring quality medical services to the people of south Louisiana.
