In the Community

Community is vital to EJGH. As a non-for-profit community hospital that receives no governmental financing, our ability to accomplish our mission is dependent upon maintaining a close and effective relationship with the community we serve. In addition to outstanding inpatient and outpatient care, we strive to provide preventive and wellness resources that can help you and your family lead the healthiest, most fulfilling lives possible.

To accomplish our community goals, we partner with many organizations, businesses or events including the American Heart Association, American Cancer Society, MS Tour for the Cure, Back to the Beach, Tour de Lis, Crescent City Classic, Character Links, Jefferson Parish Chamber of Commerce and others.
