Emergency Preparedness

West Jefferson Medical Center has plans in place to ensure the safety of our patients and staff. When a tropical storm or hurricane threatens New Orleans, West Jefferson will activate its emergency plan to provide patients and their family members, staff, and physicians with up-to-date information regarding our preparations, announcements about closing and reopening the facilities and other relevant instructions.

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

Please continue to check our site for important information and updates.
