A Letter from the CEO

Welcome to the Terrebonne General Medical Center (TGMC) website. Please allow me to take a moment to provide you with a bit of interesting information concerning our hospital. Terrebonne General Medical Center is a public, non-profit hospital located in the heart of Houma, Louisiana. TGMC opened its doors in 1954 with 76 beds, 16 physicians and 58 employees, and has grown to a nationally recognized healthcare leader with 321 beds, more than 150 active staff physicians, over 1,300 dedicated employees and 50 volunteers.

TGMC offers comprehensive care ranging from our Women’s Center, Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center at TGMC, an Outpatient Surgery Center, Inpatient and Outpatient Rehabilitation, Diagnostic Imaging Services, Women’s Imaging and Breast Center and a Community Outreach Center. We also are recognized for our outstanding cardiac, orthopedic and emergency services. Along with the number of different services that we offer, TGMC also has one of Louisiana’s only accredited stroke programs. We continuously strive to make improvements to our facility by providing our patients with the highest quality healthcare. Among some of our successes this past year, TGMC was reissued accreditation from the Joint Commission and our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit was granted Level III status by the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals. Our entire team is committed to our mission and vision as we provide healthcare services to our patients across the tri-parish region.

We hope that you are able to navigate through our site easily and find the answers to all of your health needs. On this site you will be able to apply for open job positions at TGMC, find a physician, research services available, view your hospital statement and pay your bill online, view current events, read press releases and research health content. Please be sure to view our calendar of events for free screenings and other educational topics. We also would like to invite you to join us later this year as we open our new state-of-the-art nationally accredited Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center at TGMC.

For your convenience, you also can visit us on Face book and Twitter for updates, new programs and informative healthcare topics. Thank you for visiting tgmc.com. If you have questions or suggestions about how we might improve our facility or the services we provide, please do not hesitate to let us know.
