Dear Friends, We are pleased to share our 2012 Annual Report with you, our generous supporters. It is because of your support, coupled with the vision of our boards and staff, that we continue moving forward as a leader in providing quality healthcare to our community. This year, our hospital was recognized with two significant honors from Joint Commission and the Leapfrog Group for delivering outstanding service to our patients and their families. This success was attained by all members of our team who work to provide the best care each and every day. We could not have achieved these honors without your leadership and support that allows us to continue this award-winning work.

Funds raised through the annual Dr. Charlie Prejean Memorial Endowment Golf Tournament support an endowment fund established in his memory through the Foundation.

Since 2005, this organization has raised more than $66,000 to support the General’s Burn Center. In addition to its fundraising, group members travel to camp each year and grill hamburgers for the campers.

International service organization GFWC (General Federation of Women’s Clubs) raised more than $10,000 at its annual Food, Fun and Fashion fundraiser. The event included a bridge tournament, lunch, silent auction and fashion show that supported the General’s pediatric burn patients.
Each summer, Baton Rouge General sends local pediatric burn survivors to the â€œIâ€™m Still Meâ€? Summer Burn Camp to aid in therapeutic rehabilitation and provide an opportunity to interact with other survivors. Listed left are several organizations that supported the Foundation by raising funds to send these children to camp without any expense to their families.

Philanthropy Spotlight: Janice and Gerald Pellar Leave A Legacy
Legacy Gifts The Baton Rouge General Foundation’s Legacy Society consists of donors who have included Baton Rouge General in their will or made deferred gifts of significant assets to the Foundation. These gifts fund the future of the organization. Anonymous Mr. Ronald J. Abshire, Jr. Dr. Bruce Baer Dr. Carl Baldridge* Mr. Raymond Gettier* Dr. Marshall D. Harrison* Dr. George Jones Mr.* and Mrs. Cecil McAdoo Mr. and Mrs. Gerald Pellar Mr. Paul Perkins Mr. James A. Poirier* Mr.* and Mrs. Eugene Rozas Mr. and Mrs. Paul Rozas Mr.* and Mrs. Anthony Schwartz Mr.* and Mrs. Gene Van Norman * Deceased
Janice and Gerald Pellar’s connection with Baton Rouge General began many years ago when Janice’s parents were patients at the Mid City campus. There, Janice witnessed first-hand the extraordinary care provided to her mom and dad by the compassionate nurses, physicians and staff. Years later, Janice recalled her previous encounter with the General when seeking the best available healthcare for her employees. She naturally gravitated to Baton Rouge General. Janice said, “Our involvement with the General actually started as a business decision to help foster more competition in the marketplace and lower healthcare costs. Then, the more I saw and understood the hearts and the needs of Baton Rouge General, the more I was infused with that same passion.” As often happens in life, both Janice and Gerald found themselves in need of hospital care and had already made the General their hospital of choice. Their experience as patients reinforced their passion and evolved into a hands-on, completely committed relationship as ambassadors for Baton Rouge General. Together, they made the decision to Leave a Legacy by including the General in their estate plans, ensuring the same extraordinary care that impacted their lives continues in the future. The Pellars are the personification of what leaving a legacy is all about. Together, they are making Baton Rouge a better community by aiding the future of those institutions they are passionate about today.
Thank you for making a difference. Through your generosity, Baton Rouge General is able to provide exceptional care and the latest technology to support patients, their families, physicians and staff. Listed below are a few of the purchases made possible through your gifts: • The most advanced technological equipment to administer life-saving care to our patients who have experienced burn injuries • Creation of healing arts program and addition of two new Baby Grand Player Pianos, all providing a calming and welcoming environment for our patients encountering emotional and difficult times throughout their path to wellness • Innovative programs for breast cancer survivors, including a specialized exercise program focused on healing through movement and dance • Support groups providing emotional assistance for cancer patients experiencing lymphedema as a result of their treatment • Educational scholarships for passionate nursing students committed to providing hope and healing to those in need of care • Community outreach program teaching families how to live fit and healthy lifestyles through proper nutrition, physical activity and a positive body image • Comprehensive neonatal care station, which minimizes the effects of external factors such as light, sound and touch, and promotes an exceptional healing environment, essential in the care of premature babies • Expansion of our Inpatient Rehabilitation Department for patients working to regain movement and strength • Revolutionary system in our Birth Center that monitors babies and gives mothers more mobility during labor

2012 Baton Rouge General Auxiliary
Annual Gingerbread Tea
Our Volunteer Auxiliary: Supporting our Hospital and Community The Auxiliary is an integral part of the Baton Rouge General Family. In 2011, the group provided more than 33,000 service hours, saving the hospital $650,000 by providing support to crucial services throughout both hospital campuses.
Staffing the Generalâ€™s Gift Shops
Volunteers serve in various capacities within our organization. From welcoming families at our entrances and waiting areas to staffing our gift shops and transporting patients for treatment, their efforts provide a personal touch that makes our hospital feel like home while our patients are facing critical and challenging times. Since 1952, when the Auxiliary was founded, volunteers have helped raise funds for new medical equipment and lifesaving programs. In 2012, the Auxiliary gifted more than $165,000 to support the hospitalâ€™s most pressing needs. These funds expanded the waiting area in the Seniors Emergency Room at Mid City and purchased a neonatal care station for infants in our NICU.
