On Wednesday, June 5, 2013, East Jefferson General Hospital, along with representatives from MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, hosted a ceremony in the EJGH atrium honoring those 43 EJGH physicians who have earned credentialed status as members of the MD Anderson Cancer Network.

Each of the certified physicians was recognized for their contributions to cancer care and received a certificate and lapel pin, signifying their credentialed status. To earn certified status, a physician must demonstrate excellence in their outcomes and a commitment to continued improvement. Certified physicians then earn access to MD Anderson treatment pathways and conduct regular consulting sessions with colleagues at MD Anderson Cancer Center.

Those in attendance were greeted with comments from Dr. Mark Peters, EJGH President and CEO, and Dr. Thomas Cosgriff, EJGH Medical Director of Oncology and Hematologist/Oncologist. Keynote speaker was Dr. Helmuth Goepfert, Medical Director for MD Anderson Physicians Network and Professor Emeritus for MD Anderson Cancer Center in the field of Head and Neck Surgery. The celebration also featured music by the First Community Antioch Baptist Church Choir led by Marva Joseph (watch the short performance video below).
