Our Capital Campaign

Excellence in cancer care for generations to come

Fighting and winning the battle with cancer calls for a total commitment of the mind, body and soul. And perhaps more than most diseases, cancer recovery is a long-term fight that demands medical teams working with the patient and their support system. No one patient can win this fight alone, and no single physician or member of the care team can claim credit for a patient's survival.

The hospital leadership, Board of Directors and Foundation Board of Trustees have joined together to launch a $3 million capital campaign. Of this total, $2.5 million will go toward the Outpatient Oncology Infusion Center while the remaining funds will support the Foundation's endowment to replace the emergency funds used to provide vital services in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. But, we cannot do this alone. We need your help so that East Jefferson will reach these milestones and be able to positively impact and save even more lives in the future.

The new Outpatient Oncology Infusion Center will significantly expand the number of patients we can treat and will allow us to do so in the most patient-centric manner possible. We recognize that oncology patients have special needs. We have brought the best ideas from across the country and have incorporated the elements we feel are best suited for our patients. In short, we believe this expansion will be something we all take pride in and will effectively position us as a national leader for years to come.

We thank you for the support we have received in the past and hope that you will join in today so that our expansion can go from concept to reality.

Yenni

The EJGH Foundation launched a $3 million capital campaign to build a new and expanded Outpatient Oncology Infusion Center. Currently located on the second floor of the Yenni Treatment Pavilion, the new infusion center plans call for a third story to be added to the building to accommodate a larger, more modern space. Expected groundbreaking is 2012, and this rendering represents the look of the building after project completion.
