Submitting Guest Feedback

East Jefferson takes patient opinion and experience very seriously. It is our goal to ensure that every patient who stays with us feels their care was excellent. If we have provided you with the best possible experience or if our staff has made an extraordinary effort to see that your needs were met and your expectations surpassed, let us know. We value the opportunity to reward outstanding work and encourage best practices.

However, if your experience here has been less than satisfactory, we want to know that too. Not only is it important to us that we rectify the situation for you as an individual, we want to identify any issue with hospital procedures or staff and resolve it as well. It is through understanding the patient experience that we are able to continue providing the highest standard of care in our region.

If you would like to compliment our staff or services or lodge a complaint, please contact one of the following:
