Outpatient Oncology Services Move Print E-mail

As you may know, EJGH is embarking on an expansion of our Yenni Treatment Center in order to provide better care for patients who are fighting cancer. This expansion will enable us to triple the number of patients that we treat in a day. In order to expedite this process, we are temporarily moving Outpatient Oncology Services to other areas of the hospital while our new, state-of-the-art facility is being built. The Infusion Center will be on the 5th floor of the hospital to the left of the elevators. The Cancer Registry and the Cancer Navigators will be located at 4300 Houma Blvd. Please call (504) 456-5003 for questions or information about your Outpatient Oncology appointments. We anticipate that the new facility will be completed by the end of this year, and we thank you for your patience throughout this transition.
