RISING TO THE CHALLENGE
East Jefferson General Hospital and The Foundation 2014 Community Report
2014
Letter from the President
was an extraordinary
year in many ways for East Jefferson General Hospital
and our Foundation. While healthcare in our region
has been through changes, our team members,
physicians and volunteers remained focused on
caring for our community.
Dr. Mark J. Peters
EJGH President and CEO
One of the most significant topics in the hospital’s
history has been potential partnership with
another healthcare provider. In order to better
manage costs with declining reimbursements from
insurance companies, as well as the state and federal
governments, many hospitals are consolidating.
Our Board of Directors persevered through very difficult discussions and
negotiations, working diligently to make the best decision for the future of our
hospital. These were not easy times for our board members, team members,
physicians, volunteers – or our patients. I thank you all for your support and
dedication to your community hospital. The Board made the decision earlier this
year to remain a stand-alone community hospital.
With that decision made, we remain dedicated to providing the high quality of care
you expect and deserve from East Jefferson General Hospital. We continue to be the
first in the market with many new technologies and procedures.
This Community Report reflects this dedication to clinical quality and patient
satisfaction. It also highlights the Foundation’s work within the community to
support our shared mission. I am very proud of our team members, physicians
and volunteers that keep our strong culture of caring alive and well. They are your
friends, neighbors and family members – and they truly make East Jefferson General
Hospital a thriving institution.
Sincerely,
Mark J. Peters, MD, CPE

OVER 600 PHYSICIANS and nearly 2,700 TEAM MEMBERS work every day in an
environment that is challenging, rewarding and, at times, exhilarating. On a daily basis, these
professionals save lives, cure the sick, ease the pain and suffering of those in need and enhance
the lives of those we serve. Healthcare is a demanding field. But this report shares the many
ways EJGH meets or surpasses those demands. And for those lucky enough to be around it
every day, they see that it happens exactly that often…every day.

Foundation Board Chair
In 2014, we accomplished our biggest project yet – the opening of the Outpatient
Oncology Infusion Center. The memory of the grand opening celebration will stay
with me always.
“I will never forget the emotions and energy of that night as we brought
together the staff of the Cancer Center and the donors that made the new
center a reality. It was palpable.”
I will never forget seeing the tears of many donors, who had given naming gifts
in memory of a loved one, as they saw for the first time their names etched in the
beautiful sea-blue glass naming plaques that now adorn the Infusion Center.
I joined The Foundation Board to serve my community and to give back to an
institution that has healed both me and my wife. As I complete my term as Chair
of The Foundation Board of Trustees, I could have never predicted the feeling of
pride and gratitude I received in return. For that, I thank all of you that believe in
and support East Jefferson General Hospital. I am truly honored to be a part of this
wonderful organization.
Sincerely,

I am proud to present the 2014 Annual Report for The
Foundation at East Jefferson General Hospital. What you
will see on the pages that follow is the incredible support
that we have received from our community - businesses
and corporations, schools, organizations, patients, team
members, physicians and so many more. You will also see our
commitment to serving the thousands of patients that come
through our doors every year.

The Foundation
Shawn Hotard was one of
our first patients to ring the
“Survivorship Bell” in the new
Outpatient Oncology Infusion
Center. Upon completion
of treatments, patients are
joined by staff in a bell ringing
ceremony to celebrate an
important milestone in their
cancer journey.
Oncology Infusion Center Expands to Meet Community Needs
On May 21, 2014, EJGH and The Foundation celebrated the expansion
of Oncology Services at the grand opening of the Outpatient Oncology
Infusion Center and Oncology Clinic. Along with the Radiation Oncology
Department, these units are a part of the EJGH Regional Cancer Center
housed in the Yenni Pavilion on the EJGH campus. The celebration included
the Oncology staff and many of the generous donors that helped to make
the new space possible through a $3 million capital campaign.
By tripling the space and capacity needed to accommodate growth, now
medical personnel treat cancer patients who are receiving outpatient
chemotherapy and infusions in a soothing and confidential environment.
The project also allowed for a complete renovation of the second floor
physician and clinic offices, and upgraded the first floor radiation therapy
department.
“Our vision for this project was to provide our patients and this community
with a cancer center that was second to none in our region,” says Dr. Paul
Monsour, EJGH Radiation Oncologist and Infusion Center Capital Campaign
Chair for The Foundation. “We now can see three times the number of
patients we could in the past and do it in a way that promotes healing,
recovery, privacy and an overall improved patient experience. We cannot
thank each and every donor enough for making this vision a reality.”
The completed Outpatient Oncology Infusion
Center includes the following enhancements:
• Capacity and footprint tripled from our former site
• Each of our 22 new infusion stations is an individualized, more private treatment area, complete with a
specialized recliner and all necessary clinical equipment
• Increased number of private patient rooms with beds
from 3 to 7
• Expanded Fast Track area to more quickly serve patients
• Multi-media conference room for physicians and care
team to host video conferencing, presentations and
educational offerings
• Expanded cancer resource library to offer patients and
their support system access to computer stations and
the most up-to-date research and educational material
• Expanded patient access and registration area to
welcome and register patients more efficiently
• Serenity area for relaxation with specially designed
massage chairs and therapeutic music

Annual Competitive Grants Program
Distributes over $220,000 in Funding for
Patient-Centered Care at EJGH
The second annual competitive grants program brought $222,000
in funding to 27 areas throughout the hospital, including Oncology,
Outpatient Rehab, Radiation Therapy, Cardiology, Pastoral Care and
Geriatric Behavioral Health.
Funding for INSPIRE is provided by The Foundation’s two signature
annual fundraising events: Up on the Roof and the Golf Classic. Since
2013, INSPIRE has granted over $520,000 to hospital departments to
fund cutting-edge diagnostic technology, capital projects, continuing
education, and programs to enhance the patient experience.
•New furniture, renovations and entertainment
equipment enhanced the Inpatient Rehab Unit
in 9-West.
•Remodeled, refurbished and rejuvenated
the Geriatric Psych Unit including the patient
lounge to create a more patient-friendly,
enjoyable space.
•Provided a blanket warmer cabinet for
CCU – thus exceeding patient expectations
while providing a great deal of comfort and
happiness.
•Enabled radiation therapy treatment rooms to
play music for the enjoyment of patients.
The Foundation
Donna Swartzfager Memorial Awards
In February 2014, seven grateful team members received scholarships towards
their education and training through the 4th Annual Donna Swartzfager
Memorial Awards.
The Donna Swartzfager Fund provides financial awards to EJGH team members
seeking higher education, professional development growth and certifications.
The fund was created in 2010 after Donna – who served as Director of Medical
Staff Services – passed away suddenly from heart disease. Medical staff
leadership and Donna’s family – husband Ken, siblings Ronnie Zarba and Carol
McDaniel and children Kelly and Kyle – created and oversee the disbursements
of the fund, which serves as a living memorial to honor the service, dedication
and guidance Donna provided to the medical staff and team members during
her long tenure at EJGH.

Thank You, Wayne!
As 2014 came to a close, The Foundation board said farewell to Wayne Thomas, whose term
on the Foundation Board of Trustees came to an end after 12 years of service.
Wayne’s contribution to EJGH goes even deeper than his role in The Foundation, as he sat on
the hospital board for eight years, beginning in 1996, before joining The Foundation board in
2002. Wayne has been one of only two people to serve as chair for both The Foundation and
the hospital boards.
Wayne’s leadership saw The Foundation through the closing of a successful capital campaign,
strategic planning and a renewed focus on strengthening board recruitment. He has been
a generous donor and a tireless advocate, as well as an ambassador for both EJGH and The
Foundation. As a permanent emeritus member of The Foundation Board of Trustees, Wayne
will continue to serve the hospital that he loves so dearly.
Wayne, we thank you for your service and devotion to East Jefferson General Hospital.

In Memoriam
East Jefferson General Hospital never forgets those who have had a significant impact on the hospital and its
patients. Those who have come before us have set the standard for excellent care and innovative technology
that make us an industry leader. We thank Dr. Euans and Dr. Bleich for their incredible service to EJGH.
Dr. David W. Euans
Dr. David W. Euans worked
tirelessly as a physician, director
of the EJGH Family Practice
Residency Program and chair of
the Graduate Medical Education
Committee. Joining EJGH in
1996 to develop the Family
Practice Residency Program,
Dr. Euans instinctively valued
the role of philanthropy at EJGH and became a donor
to The Foundation, making a gift every year until his
untimely passing at the age of 66 in October 2014.
Dr. Euans was a supportive educator, reliable colleague
and an attentive program director. His level of expertise
and enthusiasm propelled many programs not only into
reality but into overwhelming success.
Says former resident Dr. Billy Hays, “Dr. Euans was
responsible for training nearly 100 physicians at EJGH.
He dedicated his final years to ensuring that this
program continues to maintain a level of excellence
that is exemplified not only in the doctors he trained
but also in the countless patients he treated. His
practice in the art of medicine will live on through these
physicians, leaving a lasting impact on the healthcare of
thousands.”

Dr. Stan Bleich
To summarize Dr. Stan Bleich in one
word, it would be “dedicated.”
Dr. Bleich was incredibly dedicated
to his patients, his staff and East
Jefferson General Hospital.
When Dr. Bleich joined the medical
staff at EJGH as a cardiologist in 1989,
he committed himself fully to helping
EJGH grow into the cardiac care center
of excellence that it is today. He also served on the Medical
Executive Committee and EJGH hospital board. As a clinician, his
research as a primary investigator in the study of TPA and strokes
was considered especially noteworthy, and he was one of the
lead physicians to advocate for the EJGH hybrid suite.
In addition to his dedicated service to the hospital as a member
of the medical staff, Dr. Bleich was a true and generous friend
to The Foundation. He was a regular and generous donor and
helped to organize the Donna Swartzfager Memorial Fund.
Donna served EJGH since 2000 and became director of the
Medical Staff office in 2010 when she suddenly passed away
from heart disease. Dr. Bleich brought together Donna’s family,
friends and other members of the medical staff to raise money
for the Donna Swartzfager Memorial Fund. This fund is now in its
fifth year of operation and has provided scholarship and professional development support to many EJGH team members.
Dr. Bleich passed away on October 21, 2014, at the age of 59.
5th Annual Christopher Guillot
Memorial Golf Tournament
The Foundation at East Jefferson General Hospital participated in the 5th Annual
Christopher Guillot Memorial Golf Tournament in November 2014. Over $10,000 was
raised in memory of Chris Guillot, who passed away from metastatic melanoma at
the young age of 18. A portion of the proceeds will go to support the EJGH Regional
Cancer Center, where Chris was treated before his death.
The Christopher Jordan Guillot Memorial Foundation was formed by his parents,
Mike and Lorraine, to support local organizations and to create awareness of the
danger of skin cancers.

for the Cause which was hosted by the EJGH Wellness Center and attracted
nearly 100 participants.
Proceeds from the Live PINK initiative will be designated for the expansion
of the EJGH Breast Care Center, scheduled to being at the end of 2015.

The event was made possible with the support of 55 event sponsors, a wide variety of over 50 beer donors, delicious food from
26 different restaurants and a VIP Patron Party sponsored by the

many EJGH physicians, enjoyed food catered by Drago’s, live music and a silent auction.
The Golf Classic and the Pre-Party, raised a combined total of over $105,000. All event
proceeds were designated for INSPIRE, the Foundation’s competitive grants program that
promotes patient centered care.
“Whether you are a corporate sponsor, you work at the hospital or you rely on this
hospital for excellent medical care, your involvement in our Foundation directly
impacts the care our patients receive,” says Amy Uddo, pre-party chair.

A diagnosis of Compartment Syndrome, a life-saving leg amputation
and a battle with chronic wounds led Sandy and Bruce Warner to many
clinics and physicians in search of care for their son Scott. When they
finally met Dr. Frank Rabito, Medical Director of the EJGH Wound Care
Center, everything changed.
“Scott saw so many doctors and practitioners while fighting his battle.
But nothing felt right. Our voices were not being heard. And then we
found Dr. Rabito,” said Sandy. “Dr. Rabito was the first doctor to step back
and look at Scott’s situation from every angle. He left no stone unturned.”
The emotional care he received was even more impactful. Said Sandy:
“Dr. Rabito truly lifted Scott up psychologically. The nurses were
wonderful and so very kind. Everyone was so gentle with him. Scott
used to dread his appointments at other clinics; here at EJ they made his
treatments as pleasant as possible.”
When Scott succumbed to complications related to his illness in May
2014, at the age of 25, Scott’s father called Dr. Rabito to share the
news. “Dr. Rabito was genuinely devastated. I was so touched by his
compassion,” Sandy said.
“I truly believe that Dr. Rabito gave the best care
that is humanly and medically possible.”
In the wake of the family’s tragedy, their faith has been their guide.
And to thank Dr. Rabito for his care, they made a gift to The Foundation
in his honor.
The gift was used for educational training for the wound care staff. The
Warners were thrilled. “We are so happy that our gift was used to help
expand the knowledge of someone that cared for Scott. It feels good to
know that our gift will in some way help other patients like Scott.”

The Jake Project
Jake and Bit Noullet were Jefferson Parish residents for 35 years before retiring to the mountains
of North Carolina in 2010. For them, no matter where they lived, Metairie would always be home.
So when Jake passed away in November 2012 after a brave four-month battle against pancreatic
cancer, it came naturally to his friends and family to honor his legacy right here at home.
The Noullets’ life-long friend Dr. Robert Songy, an Internal Medicine physician here at EJGH,
wanted to honor Jake’s legacy and help cancer patients at the same time. In the spring of 2014,
with many gifts from Jake’s friends and family, The Jake Project was launched to help cancer
patients facing severe financial difficulties and limited or no access to transportation.
“Cancer can be a terrifying diagnosis and the treatment process is often overwhelming for our
patients. Having free, guaranteed and reliable transportation truly lifts a huge burden for many
of our patients,” says Cancer Care Navigator Debbie Schmitz, RN.
Jake Noullet
Bit and her daughter Faith have been delighted with this project.
“In the 35 years we lived in Metairie, EJGH was the hospital that cared for us, so selecting EJGH as the
hospital to house and operate The Jake Project was an easy decision. We are so happy to be able to keep
Jake’s memory close to the surface through this fund, knowing this will in some small way make life a little
easier for a cancer patient struggling financially. We think Jake would be humbled but so very pleased.”
HERITAGE SOCIETY
The Heritage Society honors the philanthropic leadership and vision of
individuals who have provided for the future health of our community

UNITEAM
Uniteam is the EJGH Employee Giving Program where team members can choose to donate to The Foundation through payroll deduction,
automatic monthly donations or one-time gifts. The generous support of our team members in 2014 helped to fund the building of the
new Outpatient Oncology Infusion Center, the project to expand our Breast Care Center and the Humanitarian Fund – a fund that provides
financial assistance to EJGH team members in a time of crisis. We are incredibly grateful to the nearly 900 team members that participated
in Uniteam in 2014.

In addition to providing the highest quality care to our patients day in and day out, many physicians are also generous
supporters of The Foundation. From attending Up on the Roof or the Golf Pre-Party, serving on event or fundraising
committees or inspiring gifts of gratitude, we are incredibly grateful to the many physicians that partnered with The
Foundation this past year. In the fall of 2014, we launched a successful first-ever Physician Annual Giving Campaign
chaired by Dr. Luis Arencibia, Dr. John Lindsey and Dr. Joseph F. Uddo, Jr. Listed below are active members of the EJGH
Medical Staff that made a personal gift to the annual fund, capital campaign or other restricted fund.**
