East Jefferson General Hospital (EJGH) is pleased to announce it is partnering with Excel Med Alliance to open two new freestanding Emergency Departments (ED) in 2017-2018. These new facilities will provide ease of access to quality emergency care to the community.

The first ED is slated to open mid-2017 and will be located at the corner of Veterans Memorial Boulevard and Clearview Parkway in Metairie. The second location will open in Kenner in 2018.

At a freestanding ED, patients are seen by emergency physicians minutes after walking through the door, providing fast, comprehensive emergency care and treatment, resulting in improved patient satisfaction.

“These will be fully functional emergency departments, staffed 24/7 by an experienced, highly qualified staff, led by board-certified emergency medicine physicians,” notes Dr. Mark Peters, President, and CEO of EJGH. “Focusing on creating new care access points for the community is part of East Jefferson’s efforts to bring quality care closer to our patients.”
