East Jefferson General Hospital Foundation recently awarded the  2015 Donna Swartzfager Memorial Awards to eight deserving team members. The recipients were selected through a highly competitive selection process.

Donna Swartzfager served the community as the Director of Medical Staff Services when she suddenly passed away from heart disease in 2010. Following her death, her devoted husband (Ken), siblings (Carol and Ronnie), children (Kelly and Kyle), and leaders of the medical staff (Raymond DeCorte, MD and the now-deceased Stan Bleich, MD), came together to create an endowed fund in her name.

The fund honors Donna’s legacy of her commitment to EJGH by supporting professional and continuing higher education, training, and certification for EJGH team members and staff of active medical staff members.
