TGMC: 2015 Year in Review

Houma, LA–12/30/2015

The foundation of a great organization begins with a dedicated team who always carries a sense of pride. Terrebonne General Medical Center (TGMC)’s team constantly shines by going above and beyond providing the best healthcare for their patients. 2015 was an incredible year for the patients, staff, and physicians at TGMC. From new and exciting renovations and improvements, to awards and accolades, TGMC’s hard work and commitment to the community continues to make a significant impact over the last year.

TGMC received several major recognitions this year that encompass all that it has to offer to both patients and the entire community. When it comes to inspiring and promoting wellness, TGMC’s Healthy Lifestyles Center takes center stage in providing a proactive approach to living healthier lives.

Being named as a Level One Hospital WellSpot set the pace for the many awards to follow throughout the year. TGMC’s accredited Chest Pain Center was recognized on a national level with the Amerinet Healthcare Achievement Award and statewide the American Heart Association honored TGMC with the Gold Quality Achievement Award for excellence in both stroke and resuscitation care.

Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center at TGMC was named to the Becker’s Hospital Review Top 100 Hospitals with Great Oncology programs, received the National Quality Oncology Practice Initiative (QOPI®) Certification Program and the Outstanding Achievement Award by the Commission on Cancer (CoC) solidifying the exceptional care provided to cancer patients.

Even TGMC’s advances in technology have been noted by the Stage 6 Health Information and Management Systems Society for safety in patient health records. For the second time, TGMC was granted the Pathway to Excellence® nurses accreditation for continuing to nourish the best career environment for nurses. TGMC excels when it comes to patients’ safety, satisfaction, and quality of care, and in return has been awarded the grade of “A” by Leapfrog Hospital Safety Scores, the Top Performer on Key Quality Measures® by Joint Commission, and the Louisiana Safety Star Award. TGMC is thankful to the entire hospital staff and physicians for the dedication, knowledge, and teamwork it takes to accomplish such extraordinary acknowledgements.

TGMC does amazing things inside the hospital each day and the hard work extends far out into the community through the many events, schools, and organizations they support. TGMC holds many events through the year that benefit The Foundation for TGMC and Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center at TGMC Foundation. From Ladies Night Out to the Rooftop Roundup, our generous community, donors, and employees continue to provide funds that are given directly back to those who need medical care, services, and the best in research and technology TGMC can offer. The reinforcement of these events brings awareness and community involvement making our hospital a strong leader and partner among our residents.

TGMC’s employee volunteer program, Team Terrebonne, made the biggest impact toward volunteerism to date by donating their time in over 50 community events this past year with more than 3,100 hours of community service. Tireless devotion to giving back to the community is one of the greatest assets of the TGMC team.  Team Terrebonne continues to exceed the expectation as a constant helping hand towards all.

Throughout TGMC much advancement is being made inside the building with the completion of the MRI Caring suites in Radiology, the newly renovated cafeteria, the addition of the Sports Performance Training Center, and most recently the beginning stages of the Hybrid Operating Room. All of these areas have the patient and community in mind making healthcare and wellness better accessible while highlighting the great services TGMC is providing each day.

It is truly an exciting time for more great things happening at TGMC as the outstanding team enters into another year. The physicians and staff’s dedication to providing patients and the community with the best healthcare is what makes TGMC an exceptional place. TGMC continues to bring exceptional healthcare close to home.
