East Jefferson General Hospital

Chris Guillot was a role model son, student, athlete, friend and, in many eyes, a hero. In May of 2009, at the age of 17, the John Curtis Patriot was diagnosed with Metastatic Melanoma, a disease that would ultimately end his life too soon in March of 2010.

To honor his memory, the Guillot family began the Christopher Jordan Guillot Memorial Foundation with the goal of providing awareness of skin cancers in young adults.

This year, during the 8th annual Chris Guillot Memorial Golf Tournament, all money raised during the event will go towards the East Jefferson General Hospital Foundation, the fundraising arm of EJGH, to help support the fight against cancer.

A trio of East Jefferson General Hospital Team Members have earned the coveted Patient Advocacy Certification from the Beryl Institute, the globe’s leading and highest-regarded patient experience organization.

Director of Guest Services Nina Victory along with Guest Services Liaisons Leea Morales and Vickie Tullier each received their certificates from the Beryl Institute, ushering in a higher-level of patient-centered care to the hospital.

“Receiving a certification in Patient Advocacy through the Beryl Institute allows our Guest Services Liaisons to be committed to delivering superior quality, safety and service to the patients and families that we serve every day in our community,” said Victory.
