East Jefferson General Hospital is pleased to announce it has recently earned the CNOR® Strong designation from the Competency & Credentialing Institute (CCI). The CNOR Strong designation is given to facilities having at least 50% of its perioperative nursing staff CNOR (Certified Nurse Operating Room) certified, and provides programs that reward and recognize its certified nurses. This is the first year CCI has awarded this elite status to facilities nationwide.
EJGH is the first hospital in the New Orleans region to earn this distinction, going well above and beyond CCI’s 50% minimum, boasting 69% of its perioperative nurses as CNOR certified.
The Saul’s Light Foundation, an organization dedicated to helping meet the needs of New Orleans families and their babies in the NICU as they journey home, has donated $5,000 in its latest ongoing efforts to support East Jefferson General Hospital.
The gift was the most recent installment from Saul’s Light, which has pledged continuing support to The Foundation at EJGH.
