Emergency Preparedness

East Jefferson General Hospital has plans in place and is ready to act when emergencies affect our area. Similarly we encourage you to be prepared to implement your emergency plan for yourself and family.

Our emergency preparedness plan is designed to ensure the safety of our patients, and staff. In preparing our plan we worked closely with state and local governments, the Louisiana Hospital Association, LCMC Health, our medical staff and employees.
