As Medical Director of the EJGH Emergency Department for almost 20 years, Dr. John Wales takes to heart the mission of East Jefferson General Hospital – to deliver the highest quality, compassionate care to the patients and community we serve. As a former Chair of The Foundation Board of Trustees, he embodies the philanthropic spirit by leading through example.

Dr. Wales had heard about new technologies that made it easier and faster to intubate patients. So through a donor directed gift to The Foundation, he took it upon himself to make sure his Emergency Physicians were getting the best equipment to provide their patients with the best care possible.

Grateful Patient Honors Wife’s Memory with Donation to Infusion Center Print E-mail

Tom O'BrienIn 1970, Tom O'Brien and his wife Hope Riley O'Brien lived nearby and watched East Jefferson General Hospital built from the ground up. That started a life-long relationship with his community hospital.

Hope passed away of renal failure on March 1, 2010, after what Tom says was "60 of the most wonderful years" of his life. It was his gratefulness for the compassionate care given to him and his wife by Dr. Chuck Cucchiara, his belief in the mission of The Foundation, and his commitment to his community hospital that inspired him to make a generous donation to The Foundation in memory of Hope. The gift is designated for the building of the new Infusion Center.
