East Jefferson General Hospital

Peoples Health Champion Patricia Morris

Congratulations to East Jefferson General Hospital volunteer Patricia Morris who has been named a People’s Health Champion!

Morris has been a volunteer with the hospital since 2012, logging over 1,200 hours of service time primarily in the Volunteer Services office.

The Peoples Health Champions program recognizes the exceptional achievements of Louisiana residents age 65 and older. Peoples Health, in collaboration with the New Orleans Saints, celebrates seniors in the community who shatter the myth that getting older means slowing down.

26-year East Jefferson General Hospital volunteer veteran Louise Pete has been a mainstay at the hospital’s main lobby information desk, earning the representative Volunteer of the Month honors for November.

With over 6,000 volunteer hours put in, Pete serves as the warm and inviting face our visitors see when they walk in the front doors of our hospital. Upbeat, friendly, kind and dedicated are just a few of the adjectives used to describe Pete by her gratified visitors.

Pete has been an invaluable asset to East Jefferson General Hospital over her countless years of service and truly embodies what it means to be a part of the EJGH community.

East Jefferson General Hospital celebrated the heroes in the community on Veterans Day, holding a special flag raising ceremony on Friday morning to recognize those who have served and protected.

World War II veterans U.S. Army Air Corps Captain Alonzo P. Emerson, Jr., who served on a B-25 bomber in Italy, and U.S. Army Staff Sergeant Raymond Ferran, who took part in the Battle of the Rhein River, were on hand to raise the country’s colors.

East Jefferson General Hospital at the 2016 Heart Walk

In its ongoing support as a leading sponsor for the 2016 New Orleans Heart Walk, East Jefferson General Hospital and its team members helped raise nearly $32,000 for the American Heart Association during this past Saturday’s event.

“It was humbling to see so many of our team members lend their support,” said EJGH President and CEO and 2016 New Orleans Heart Walk Chairman Dr. Mark Peters. “It shows our dedication to the community that so many of our team members gave not only their money, but also their time for this worthy cause. I can’t thank them enough for their tireless efforts.”

The Pain Management Institution at East Jefferson General Hospital is set to move to its new location starting on Monday, Nov. 14.

The clinic, currently located at 4300 Houma Blvd., Suite 105, is relocating to the sixth floor at 4320 Houma Blvd. in Metairie.

The move will provide a more patient-friendly experience and allow physicians to continue to bring a multidisciplinary approach to the treatment of chronic pain.
