Philanthropy Spotlight: Janice and Gerald Pellar Leave A Legacy

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. Click here to learn more about how you can leave a legacy gift to Baton Rouge General.
