“Pie-A-Leader” is sponsored by Ochsner’s Revenue Cycle and HIM divisions to raise funds for a local charity.

This year’s charity will be the Ochsner Cancer Institute Patient Assistance Fund. This fund allows us to coordinate cancer care and develop clinical research and supportive care programs for cancer patients and their families. Utilizing a multidisciplinary team approach to provide the most rounded care possible, staff members focus on taking the patient through the challenges of living with cancer including care after treatments have ended as part of the Cancer Survivorship Program. The main event is centered around auctioning off pies that the winner will get to put in the face of Ochsner leaders. Money is raised by selling T-shirts, voting for the leader that you want to see with a pie in their face, and by auctioning off the actual pie.
