East Jefferson General Hospital

Lee White

As a volunteer greeting guests and as a member of the Volunteer Advisory Committee, Larry is committed to ensuring that everyone deserves the best possible experience every day. Larry mans the information desk in Groundlink. From there, he is often the first “EJGH” face visitors encounter. Larry takes a great deal of pride in ensuring those visitors receive a welcome, wayfinding and assistance that reassures them this is not your typical hospital. Knowing a visit to the hospital can be a daunting, unexpected and often unwelcomed part of someone’s day, Larry goes above and beyond in providing assistance and a smiling, pleasant presence that comes from the heart. Whether they are a patient, a guest, a team member or even a fellow volunteer. Thank you Larry, for both your service, and your commitment to excellence.

Joseph Mikes

Lee White has been a faithful volunteer for 9 years, contributing over 1500 hours of service at the Domino 2 Information Desk. Every Friday at Noon, he comes in with a smile and a cheerful attitude, ready to assist anyone who needs his help. From training new volunteers, to providing wheelchair escorts for our guests, Lee is always the first to jump in whenever someone needs assistance. Perhaps the greatest compliment to Lee is that patients, guests, and staff alike all compliment his work ethic and smiling, pleasant, helpful manner.

With the return of water pressure throughout the Parish, East Jefferson General Hospital is immediately transitioning off our well system and returning to the Parish Water System. We expect to experience normal water pressure immediately.

WE ARE STILL UNDER A BOIL ADVISORY so please act accordingly. Bottled water is still available if needed. Today the Parish provided an updated timeline for the boil water advisory they expect it to be lifted sometime Saturday. We are working closely with Parish Officials and will keep you updated as that evolves.

While EJGH has continued functioning at full capabilities, some remote locations have been closed. Those clinics that are open today include:

Today January 20, 2018), Jefferson Parish Officials lifted the Boil Water Advisory that had been issued earlier this week. At this time, EJGH has full pressure and potable water throughout our faucets, coffee/soft drink machines and ice makers.

The Administration of EJGH wants to thank our physicians, nurses, team members, patients, guests, vendor/suppliers and our entire community for their patience and diligence in ensuring that patient care would never be compromised during this event.

At this time, we expect all clinics, services, labs and the Wellness Center to open at regular times on Monday, January 22nd.
