Frontline healthcare workers honored with street dedication at EJGH


Councilwoman Jennifer Van Vrancken, Parish President Cynthia Lee Sheng, and East Jefferson General Hospital leaders honor frontline healthcare workers and first responders by renaming the street surrounding the hospital to “Healthcare Heroes Way”.

“You all have been on our minds constantly because we were trying to do a fight, you were the frontline of that fight,” said Jefferson Parish President Cythina Lee Sheng at the unveiling. “We will never forget how you stood up for us and performed your very best during what I would call our worst time.”

Local Artist Madi Hannan also helped the parish and hospital to honor healthcare workers by painting the “Healthcare Heroes Way” traffic control box on the West Esplanade neutral ground.
