EGAN Home Health and Hospice site now available in 50+ Languages

EGAN Home Health and Hospice has upgraded its website such that the website is available in Spanish, Arabic, Vietnamese and more than 50 other languages. Chances are, no matter a website visitor’s native language, they’ll be able to view http://eganhealthcare.com/ in their native language.

EGAN Website Tramslator

With New Orleans demographically being a melting pot in the truest sense, it made sense that EGAN make sure that all of their potential patients, customers and their respective families be able to access the company’s site and have no doubt about the meaning of any of the contents of the website.

The translator automatically detects the native language of the user using the browser accessing the site, then automatically translates the language content of the site to language of the user, requiring no action of behalf of the user to view the site in their native language. If the user wishes to switch languages for whatever reason, they can do so using the easy-to-use widget located at the top of the right navigation bar.

The technology used to create the translator is owned by Microsoft and provided by Bing.

EGAN has a myriad of patients of Hispanic and Asian decent (particularly Vietnamese). The translator widget was designed to make the website easy to use for all its visitors regardless of what language they speak.

EGAN is currently working on getting Spanish, Vietnamese and possibly other languages available for closed captioning for the company’s YouTube videos.

EGAN Pediatrics Day at the Zoo

EGAN Pediatrics Makes Special Trip to Audubon Zoo

The care team at EGAN Pediatrics recently made a very special trip to the Audubon Zoo with a group of special needs children. By all accounts, it was an enjoyable day for staff, the children and their respective families alike.

For many making the trip, this was their very first-ever visit to the zoo.

For others such as assistant administrator Peter Egan Jr., it was his first visit in nearly 20 years. “It’s even more amazing than I remember it being,” an enthusiastic Egan stated.

The group arrived around 10 am. They split up into groups before meeting back up for lunch in the early afternoon. Some stayed until well into the late afternoon, with the Sea Lion exhibit being among the most popular attractions among the group.

Throughout the day, the specially-made blue EGAN Pediatrics t-shirts made for the event and worn by staff, patients and their families/caregivers could be spotted throughout the zoo. Approximately 60 people attended in total, including the children, their families and caregivers, as well as EGAN Pediatrics employees.

A wonderful time was had by all, and the event was so successful EGAN Pediatrics is considering making it an annual affair.
