Dr Elbert Goodier East Jefferson General Hospital

A tragic event transpired today on our campus. A man entered one of our medical office buildings and killed Dr. Elbert Goodier, III. This is a tragic loss for EJGH and our entire community.

Dr. Goodier was respected and beloved by all who had the privilege of knowing him. Our hearts and sympathies go out to his family, his friends, his staff and all who knew him. Our chaplains are available should anyone wish to speak with them. We will be sending out more information as arrangements are made. We, as a hospital and community, now mourn the loss of a generous and gracious man.
