EJGH / MD Anderson Cancer Network Service Area
As our region's only member of MD Anderson Cancer Network, EJGH truly stands as a regional cancer center serving an area that stretches well beyond the Greater New Orleans area, that patients can turn to for the highest levels of care available between the Mississippi Gulf Coast and Lake Charles, Louisiana.
Our service area encompasses almost the entire southern half of Louisiana, (28 Parishes) and the Gulf Coast of Mississippi, (11 Counties). Through our membership status, many of those seeking treatment at MD Anderson in Houston, who live in our service area, will now be referred to East Jefferson General Hospital. The Louisiana Parishes represented in this service area include Jefferson, Orleans, St. Bernard, Plaquemine, St. Tammany, Tangipahoa, Washington, St. Charles, Lafourche, Terrebone, St. Mary, St. Martin, Assumption, St. James, St. John the Baptist, Ascension, Livingston, East Baton Rouge, West Baton Rouge, Iberville, East Feliciana, West Feliciana, St. Helena, Point Coupee, Lafayette, Iberia, Vermillion and St. Landry. The Mississippi Counties included in our service area are Hancock, Harrison, Jackson, Pearl River, Stone, Forrest, Lamar, Marion, Walthall, Pike and Amite.
