East Jefferson General Hospital

After Hurricane Katrina, EJGH received an outpouring of donations from hospitals throughout the country. These donations allowed the EJGH Foundation’s Humanitarian Fund to give over $500,000 to help our team Members rebuild.

Help our fellow hospital employees in Texas whose lives have been impacted by the devastating destruction caused by Hurricane Harvey. While thousands of our colleagues work around the clock to serve emergency response efforts, their families are being affected by this historic storm and flooding damage.

Make an appointment at the East Jefferson General Hospital Blood Center throughout the month of September and enjoy free summertime accessories including beach bags, hats, sun visors, umbrellas and more.

Donors will receive one item per pint of blood donated while supplies last.

East Jefferson General Hospital earned four stars for the second consecutive term from the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) when the organization released its much-anticipated Overall Hospital Quality Star Ratings this past week.

EJGH outperformed all other area hospitals with its four stars and the measure places the institution among the top tier of the nearly 5,000 rated hospitals in the country, according to data released by CMS.

Congratulations to all 15 of East Jefferson General Hospital’s outstanding nurses who have earned 2017 “Great 100” honors in the state of Louisiana by the Great 100 Nurses Foundation.

The group, now in its 31st year of existence, was founded in New Orleans and honors nurses across the state by selecting the top 100 based on their concern for humanity, contributions to the profession and mentoring of others.
