East Jefferson General Hospital

Dean Angerdina

Each and every week, Dean Angerdina can be found helping direct patients at the second floor Domino Pavilion escort desk, where he has served every Thursday for the past eight years, earning him East Jefferson General Hospital Volunteer of the Month honors for September.

A member of the Volunteer Advisory Committee, Angerdina has helped train countless other volunteers and is always a patient and kind teacher. Along with his duties at the escort desk, he often times fills in in the Cardiac Rehab Department when needed.

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.
