Cancer Care at East Jefferson General Hospital
To hear the words “you have cancer” is a life changing event. At East Jefferson General Hospital, we don’t believe hearing those words is the beginning of the end. We believe it’s just the beginning of the fight.
Our ability to help you fight, AND WIN, your battle with cancer is unsurpassed in our region. We provide a highly personalized approach to every patient. Perhaps nothing speaks to that more than our status as a member of the MD Anderson Cancer Network. MD Anderson is recognized as America’s premier cancer fighting center. We are proud to be the state’s only hospital to earn being part of that network of care.
Perhaps nothing speaks to this personalized approach more than our Cancer Care Navigator Program. The navigator works with you, and your family, from the moment you are diagnosed to help organize your treatment plan, answer your questions and demystify the process so you can concentrate on only one thing… getting well.
Innovation is something we believe in strongly at East Jefferson General Hospital. Our Integrative Medicine Program effectively takes holistic therapies like massage, aromatherapy, guided imagery and more and makes them part of your treatment process. We also have a program at our Wellness Center called “Live Well with Cancer”, which is a 3-phase health/fitness program built specifically with cancer patients in mind. These are just two examples of EJGH leading the way in a more personalized approach to achieving our only goal – Survivorship.
