Women’s Services at EJGH Built with Only One Thing in Mind…You!

At East Jefferson General Hospital, we know women rule. Today’s women are winning World Cups, running nations & corporations and most importantly, making all the healthcare decisions for yourselves, your families and eventually, even for your parents.

EJGH recognizes that and that is why we have built entire service lines with you in mind. These are services that must be clinically superior but also as convenient and “user-friendly” as healthcare can be.

In addition to providing outcomes that have independently placed us as Louisiana’s Number One Hospital for Overall Medical Care and Overall Hospital Care, we have developed the region’s most reliable online physician scheduling tool. We created a patient portal that lets you take control of your medical history, labs, tests and more. With MD Save, we provide online transparent cash pricing to give you the most affordable options in paying for your care. Through Centralized Scheduling, we provide one telephone resource through which you can register for classes, seminars, support groups and almost always help you get a doctor’s appointment within 48 hours. With East Jefferson Imaging Center on Clearview Parkway, EJGH Urgent Care in Kenner and primary care locations in River Ridge, Lakeview, and Old Metairie we provide access to EJGH excellence and convenience close to your home.

In short, every day, we are building the hospital, and healthcare model you want for you and your family. You don’t want to be just another number. You want your care and your time to be taken seriously and for it to be done in a caring, personalized manner. Welcome to East Jefferson General Hospital, the region’s only 4-Star Hospital.

Mammography

Each year, nearly 27,000 women in Louisiana will be diagnosed with breast cancer. Almost 10,000 will die from the disease. The best tools we have to prevent these deaths are awareness and mammography. The Breast Care Center at East Jefferson General Hospital is the region’s most advanced/comprehensive center for breast cancer diagnosis and prevention. We not only feature the most advanced diagnostic mammography/ultrasound and MRI technologies, we marry those technologies with Radiologists who SPECIALIZE IN BREAST CANCER DIAGNOSIS. While some centers feature physicians who are reading leg x-rays, joint MRI’s and mammography in a day, our physicians are specially trained, and concentrate on the most accurate detection, diagnosis and staging of breast cancer possible. That specialization gives you the greatest levels of confidence in both what is detected and just as importantly, what is NOT found.

Women & Newborn / Labor & Delivery

When it is time for you to start, or add to your family, turn to the EJGH Women & Newborn team to ensure you, and your baby have the best, safest, healthiest experience possible. Nowhere in our region will you find a more comprehensive program to carry you through prenatal care, to a safe and healthy birthing process, lactation education, post-partum care and more. From the birthing experience we offer to our highly qualified NICU physicians and nurses, we deliver the best experience for both mother and baby. We have been recognized by clinical experts as the most advanced center for safe birthing experiences. But just as importantly, nowhere will you find a more caring, professional, dedicated staff than here. Every day, we DELIVER for those mothers coming here entrusting us with the delivery of their baby.

Minimally Invasive Hysterectomy

Today’s minimally invasive surgeries are nothing at all like what your mother or her mother endured. The incisions are dramatically smaller, the surgical time is shorter, the hospital stay is shorter, the recovery time is dramatically shorter, and the results are the same or superior. EJGH helped pioneer this more patient-friendly approach to surgeries in this region and over the past decade, has continuously raised the bar in providing the highest levels of care and outcomes you will find. Most importantly, the continuity of care that you will receive knowing that the same OB/Gyn-surgeon who performs your hysterectomy is also there to assist in all other aspects of your menopausal and post-menopausal health gives you peace-of-mind.
