Information about East Jefferson General Hospital's women’s care

Women do a lot, and that’s why we’ve built entire healthcare service lines with you in mind. Our goal is to provide all women’s services with heart, making them as convenient and personalized as possible.

  • Each year, nearly 27,000 women in Louisiana will be diagnosed with breast cancer. Almost 10,000 will die from the disease. The best tools we have to prevent these deaths are awareness and mammography.

    The Breast Care Center at East Jefferson General Hospital is the region’s most advanced and full-service center for breast cancer diagnosis and prevention. Our radiologists specialize in breast cancer diagnoses, which means that the best doctors use our advanced technology to provide you with the best care. That specialization gives you the greatest levels of confidence in both what we detect and, just as importantly, what we don’t find.

Labor and delivery

When it is time for you to start or add to your family, turn to East Jefferson General Hospital’s Women and Newborn team to ensure you and your baby have the safest, healthiest experience possible. Nowhere in our region will you find a more complete program to carry you through prenatal care, a safe and healthy birthing process, lactation education, postpartum care, and more.

From the birthing experience to our highly qualified NICU physicians and nurses, we deliver healthcare with heart for both momma and baby. We have been recognized by clinical experts as the most advanced center for safe birthing experiences. But just as importantly, nowhere will you find a more caring, professional, dedicated staff than here. Every day, we do what we do for the families trusting us with the delivery of their babies.

Minimally invasive hysterectomy
A hysterectomy is a surgery to remove the uterus. But with today’s minimally invasive techniques, hysterectomy surgeries are unlike anything before. The incisions are dramatically smaller. The surgical time, hospital stay, and recovery time are shorter. And the results are superior. East Jefferson General Hospital helped pioneer this more patient-friendly approach to surgeries in this region, and over the past decade, we have continuously raised the bar in providing extraordinary care and outcomes.

Most importantly, you’ll have peace of mind with continuity of care: the same surgeon who performs your hysterectomy is also there to assist in all other aspects of your menopausal and post-menopausal health.
