Why Choose LewisGale Hospital Montgomery
We specialize in heart and vascular care—with the only cardiac catheterization lab in the New River Valley that performs percutaneous coronary intervention (stent and angioplasty)—as as well as orthopedic and spine care, heartburn treatment at LewisGale Hospital Montgomery’s Heartburn Treatment Center and maternity services through our family-focused Birthing Center facilities with award-winning lactation consultants.
We are among a select group of healthcare organizations nationwide to receive Magnet® recognition – a designation held by less than seven percent of U.S. hospitals. This is the second time the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Magnet Recognition Program® has granted our hospital this credential for meeting rigorous standards for nursing caring. Magnet recognition is the gold standard for nursing excellence and has shown to result in higher patient satisfaction and lower risk of 30-day mortality.
Accredited Chest Pain Center
Within LewisGale Regional Health System, including LewisGale Hospital Montgomery, you’ll find hospitals with accredited Chest Pain Centers. This designation from The Society of Cardiovascular Patient Care recognizes our exceptional efforts to create better outcomes for potential heart attack patients.
Baby-Friendly Designated Facility
LewisGale Hospital Montgomery is part of an elite group of U.S. hospitals who have received international recognition as a Baby-Friendly Designated facility, a global program sponsored by the Word Health Organization and United Nations Children’s Fund. Only 298 facilities nationwide have achieved this distinction. LewisGale Hospital Montgomery is the first facility in Southwest Virginia, and only the seventh hospital in the state to achieve this distinction.
The Baby-Friendly designation means LewisGale provides the optimal level of care for moms and babies by promoting, protecting and supporting breastfeeding. To achieve the award the hospital had to undergo a rigorous onsite survey and demonstrate it follows the programs’ 10 Steps to Successful Breastfeeding initiative. These steps have been proven to help moms breastfeed more successfully.
