The awards were announced on Wednesday, June 3rd. These awards will fund patient-centered programs to 21 different departments throughout the hospital. INSPIRE is a competitive grants program that focuses on patient-centered care initiatives at EJGH and is funded through the proceeds of The Foundation’s signature fundraising events: The Annual Golf Classic & Pre-Party held in the spring and Up on the Roof, a popular beer tasting event held in the fall.
Among the departments receiving funds was the Women and Child Department. The grant they received will allow them to install a video monitoring system on the cribs of babies in the NICU, allowing new moms and dads to log-in from a mobile device or home computer to view, and even speak to, their baby even when they are not at the hospital. This program will provide comfort for parents who are faced with much heartache and anxiety when they have to leave their babies in the NICU in order to return to work, care for an older child, or even just head home for a good night’s sleep.
EJGH physicians, staff, donors, board members and local business leaders teamed up for the 13th annual EJGH Foundation Golf Classic at Metairie Country Club. The event, held on Monday, May 11, 2015, successfully raised $110,000. Funding from the event will be invested in various programs and initiatives at EJGH to better serve the community and continue to provide outstanding healthcare.
“It is truly inspiring to witness so many members of our medical and business community come together in support of East Jefferson General Hospital,” says Marc Eagan, Chairman of the Golf Classic Committee. “I’m honored to be a part of this tournament and can say with conviction that this is one of the finest charity tournaments in our region.”
The successful tournament was presented by Millennium Healthcare Management. Parish Management Consultants hosted the 3rd annual Pre-party event held at the home of Dr. and Mrs. Gerry Cvitanovich. The Foundation would like to thank Millennium Healthcare Management, Dr. and Mrs. Gerry Cvitanovich, Cerner and Humana, Parish Management Consultants, Drago’s Seafood Restaurant, Ralph Brennan Catering & Events, Hiller Jewelry, Cox and Gilsbar for making this the most successful event yet.
