TGMC’s Dr. Ben Adams Named Rising Stars: 50 Healthcare Leaders Under 40


Terrebonne General Medical Center (TGMC) is pleased to announce Ben Adams, D.O., Vice Chief of Medical Staff, was recognized as Becker's Hospital Review 2016 Rising Stars: 50 Healthcare Leaders Under 40.

Anesthesiologist, Dr. Adams, is simultaneously serving as the Director of Anesthesiology, Medical Director of Surgery, and the Vice Chief of the Medical Staff at TGMC. Working as the only transesophageal echo (TEE) board certified anesthesiologist at the hospital, Dr. Adams functions as a key to the Structural Heart Program and also serves as counsel on all cardiac related cases at the hospital. The TEE procedure provides a close look at the anatomy and physiology of the heart's valves and chambers, without interference from the ribs or lungs. Pioneering the frequent utilization of TEE at TGMC, Dr. Adams became the go-to for advice and a leader for the hospital. Dr. Adams’ role as Vice Chief of the Medical Staff was essential in the development of TGMC’s quality reporting measures. These initiatives have led to awards for the hospital as well as new groundbreaking programs that improved the lives of Louisiana citizens. Patients are grateful for the attention Dr. Adams pays to each individual case.  He is a dedicated and compassionate physician that makes patients feel safe and comfortable by connecting with them to ensure they are receiving the best possible care.             

“I am very humbled and honored to receive this recognition. I am truly blessed to be able to work in an environment with a wonderful and supportive group of healthcare professionals that are on the cutting edge of technology and always put patients first,” said Dr. Adams.  

The Becker's Hospital Review editorial team selected individuals for inclusion based on an editorial review process, including reviews of leadership experience and peer nominations. These administrative leaders have made considerable accomplishments in their relatively short careers.

“We are very excited that Becker’s has recognized the extraordinary work of Dr. Adams,” explains Phyllis Peoples, president and CEO. “His leadership, knowledge, and innovative thinking has played a vital role in the growth of TGMC and the quality of care we give to our patients.”
