Fund the Fleet

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.
