East Jefferson General Hospital

Dr. Carol Anne Luttrell, M.D.

Radiologist Carol Anne Luttrell, M.D., director of the East Jefferson General Hospital Breast Care Center, is looking forward to the completion of the renovation and expansion of the center.

“Over the years, we’ve definitely increased our patient population,” says Dr. Luttrell, who has been the director since it was established in June 2002. “We’re looking to accommodate those additional women as well as decrease waiting times. Hopefully this will allow us to get our routine screening patients in and out and back to their day quickly. The expansion’s increased resources should also allow diagnostic patients quicker results and decreased anxiety.”


LAMMICO, the largest medical malpractice insurance company in Louisiana, has awarded East Jefferson General Hospital with a $2,500 check thanks to exceptional reported patient safety results over the past year.

EJGH is the second highest rated institution in the state in terms of risk reduction, according to LAMMICO, and the recognition is part of the hospital’s ongoing efforts to lower sepsis rates, a potentially life-threatening risk of infection.

As part of the October Breast Cancer Awareness month activities, Ursuline Academy has helped raise nearly $10,000 for The Foundation at East Jefferson General Hospital after the school held its 9th annual Pink Game.

All money raised at the Oct. 5 match against the Academy of Our Lady will be dedicated towards the Breast Care Center at EJGH.
