TGMC Honors Nurses Named to Great 100


Two nurses from Terrebonne General Medical Center (TGMC) have been named to the 2014 “Great 100 Nurses.” Angela Cheramie, RN and Dana Olivier, RN, were honored at the 28th Annual Great 100 Nurses Celebration held in October at The Pontchartrain Center.

Each year over 1,000 people attend the gala honoring 100 nurses, nominated by their peers, patients, family, friends and colleagues who have exemplified concern for humanity, as well as making outstanding contributions to both the community and the nursing profession.

Great 100 Chairman and Founder P.K. Scheerle, RN said, “This event has such a deep meaning and touches so many wonderful people in the healthcare community.  We are extremely delighted to have the opportunity to properly honor and thank some of the amazing nurses that endure so much and have such an invaluable role in our community.” 

It is a great honor in the life of a nurse.  The funds raised at this significant event are placed in a dedicated fund called “The Great 100 Nurses Foundation,” which is housed within the Greater New Orleans Foundation.  The funds will be used for nursing scholarship, recruitment and retention of experienced nurses at the bedside and valuable nursing research.

Together, Dugas and Pellegrin have almost six decades of experience at TGMC. Cheramie has served at TGMC for 28 years and works as a registered nurse in the Women’s Center Labor and Delivery unit. TGMC’s prestigious Women’s Center is an internationally designated Baby Friendly hospital and offers optimal, compassionate care for mothers and their babies as well as health and wellness care for women of all ages. Olivier has served at TGMC for 28 years and works in the Information Technology department. Our state-of-the-art Information Technology department is vital to providing TGMC with the tools needed to treat patients and maintain all computer systems that assists the staff with daily patients care including, medications, diagnostic testing and procedures.

 “TGMC is incredibly proud of our nurses being recognized as part of this year’s Great 100 Nurses,” said Phyllis Peoples, president and CEO of TGMC. “For 60 years, our nurses have provided exceptional care to the members of our community and they deserve to be honored for their service and dedication to our patients,” she continued.
