East Jefferson General Hospital is one of only 45 Magnet hospitals in the nation to be selected for study.

The Foundation recently granted its second gift of $10,000 to the Improving Heart Failures Outcomes Research Study. This gift, combined with previous support, raises the total contribution to this lifesaving study to $20,000. As one of only 45 Nurse Magnet hospitals in the country selected by the American Nurses Credentialing Center, EJGH stands as a regional leader in treating patients with heart failure complications. East Jefferson is also the only hospital in the region to earn the prestigious Gold Award in Heart Failure Care from the American Heart Association.

"As a Magnet hospital, we are always focused on improving outcomes through excellent nursing care," said Nicole Jones, RN, Clinical Nurse Specialist and Heart Failure Program Coordinator. "We are so grateful to The Foundation for recognizing the value of nursing research in improving patient outcomes at our hospital, within our community and throughout the nation."

Raises $65,000 for new Infusion Center

East Jefferson General Hospital Foundation hosted its 5th Annual "Up on the Roof" Beer Tasting event, one of the most important events our hospital puts on. Thank you to the entire community for making it a huge success, raising over $65,000. The Foundation would like to first thank Crescent Bank and Trust for sponsoring the event. Without this generosity, the event would not have been possible.

In addition, we thank the community for its outpouring of support. Nearly 1,000 people came out on a truly picture-perfect night to enjoy a sampling of dozens of beers, great food from Drago's and area restaurants, and music by the always fun Bag of Donuts. Everyone who came out had a great time.
