Help us Fund the Fleet!

The Foundation is expanding and improving current emergency management services at East Jefferson General Hospital by funding two state-of-the-art ambulances in 2017-2019.

Two additional ambulances will help East Jefferson General Hospital:

  • Respond more rapidly to the 35,000 emergency calls received per year
  • Expand the amount of emergency calls
  • Expand coverage of community events
  • Ensure better safety for EMS technicians & patients
  • Keep the EJGH fleet more efficient with newer emergency vehicles that have top of the line technology.

For more information on the project or how to give, call 504-503-5800.

Fund the Fleet Night at Andy's Bistro

Andy's Bistro, located at 3322 N. Turnbull Dr., in Metairie, is hosting a special Fund the Fleet Nights on January 15 and 29, to help raise money and awareness for this year's hospital charity of choice.

10% of all money raised throughout the night will go directly towards the “Fund the Fleet” campaign, which aims to raise money for two state-of-the-art ambulances for EJGH EMS over the next two years. The Foundation is leading the charge through the Uniteam giving campaign, which gives Team Members an opportunity to directly impact the care the hospital delivers.

All Team Members, their families and the community are invited to attend!

For more information on “Fund the Fleet,” contact The Foundation at 504-503-5800.

The Foundation gratefully acknowledges the generosity of individuals who made philanthropic contributions to the Annual Giving Campaign at the Leadership level or above.
