Four TGMC Team Members Named “Health Care Heroes”


Terrebonne General Medical Center (TGMC) is proud to announce four influential leaders and innovators in healthcare honored as 2016 Health Care Heroes by New Orleans CityBusiness. Among those honored are Internal Medicine physician Ray Cinnater, M.D., Percy Mosely, Director of Protective Services, and Interventional Cardiologists Peter Fail, M.D. and Vinod Nair, M.D.


“It is an honor to have these remarkable individuals recognized among the region’s most exceptional healthcare professionals,” said Phyllis Peoples, president and CEO of TGMC. “Our four honorees exemplify the quality and compassionate care we provide at TGMC.”


Dr. Ray Cinnater has dedicated over 45 years to treating patients in Houma. Dr. Cinnater and a group of other doctors were responsible for one of the first clinics in Terrebonne Parish creating a healthcare community very much needed in the area. Over the years of service to the community, Dr. Cinnater grew his field of expertise and study to the best care for the citizens of the region. His daily impact has no limits. Dr. Cinnater continues to stay up to date and succeed in the current challenging environment of healthcare with its many regulations and never compromises the care of his patients.  His compassion is never ending.


TGMC’s Director of Protective Services, Percy Mosely, is  a true renaissance man with great passion, especially  caring for others and  cooking.   Mosely has dedicated his career to protecting others. Before he began his career at TGMC, he served in the military and was a Lieutenant at the Terrebonne Parish Sherif’s office. Outside of his full time job, Mosely volunteers in his community through organizations such as Wounded Warrior, Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA), and other local organizations. He often takes on the role of volunteer Chef, cooking at many TGMC events and local high schools affiliated with TGMC’s Community Sports Institute. Whether it’s providing a safe environment, making a child or a veteran feel worthy, or being a classic Chef of local cuisine, Mosely is there for the Houma community in all capacities.


Interventional cardiologists, Dr. Peter Fail and Dr. Vinod Nair, have dedicated years to practicing cardiology at TGMC and Cardiovascular Institute of the South (CIS). Through their expert knowledge and experience, Dr. Fail and Dr. Nair have developed their own state-of-the-art cardiovascular software suite through Objective Medical Systems (OMS). This innovative work is a groundbreaking electronic health records and diagnostics system designed exclusively for cardiology practices. The OMS cardiovascular information system allows cardiologists an easy way to record and compare data to efficiently manage vital patient heart care information, streamline their work, and reduce any potential error.  In most cases, this information can help to determine whether a critical prescription or procedure could save someone’s life. The niche technology is quickly being integrated at many hospitals and clinics, including TGMC and CIS, among others.


Since 2007, New Orleans CityBusiness Health Care Heroes has been nominating industry standouts.  Awards are given to 50 healthcare professionals in the greater New Orleans area who have achieved medical success, made contributions to the community and had a significant impact on the local healthcare industry. Honorees are awarded in six categories: Nurse, Physician, Professional, Volunteer, Animal Care and First Responder.


New Orleans CityBusiness Health Care Hero Honorees were recognized at a special ceremony on May 16, 2016 in New Orleans.
