TGMC Accomplishments

TGMC Accomplishments

Among the many services currently provided by TGMC, the following are but a few:

  • In May of 2012, TGMC achieved the prestigious Pathway to Excellence designation, one of only two hospitals in Louisiana to achieve this award. This designation signifies the elements where nurses can flourish, confirming that TGMC is one of the BEST places to work.

  • The Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center at TGMC officially opened in the fall of 2011 and is a LEED certified, 49,000 square foot comprehensive cancer center providing a full continuum of cancer care – from early detection through critical community-based FREE cancer screenings and educational outreach programs, to diagnosis, clinical research trials, treatment, recovery and, most importantly, survivorship.

  • TGMC houses a first-class team of cardiologists, nurses and technicians who teach doctors from all over the country about the science and methods behind their approach to cardiac medicine. TGMC’s three cardiac catheterization suites have all been updated with the Toshiba Infinix digital technology, which provides better safety and outcomes to both patients and healthcare professionals.

  • The Women’s Center has attracted expectant mothers from the surrounding area, as verified by the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospital’s ranking of TGMC as the state’s fifth highest number of babies delivered each year. TGMC’s Women’s Center was also granted Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) status and can now offer a higher level of care to infants born pre-term (less than 37 weeks of gestation) or with medical problems without transporting the infant to another facility.

  • The TGMC Rehabilitation Department recently received an accreditation for its stroke specialty program by the Commission for Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, making it one of the few such facilities in the state.

  • At TGMC, our high-definition MRI, CT and digital mammography scanners are just a few of the tools that give our expert, caring staff one of the finest reputations and success rates in the region. Terrebonne General is proud to be the first center in the Tri-Parish and New Orleans Regions to offer Breast Specific Gamma Imaging (BSGI) technology and is one of only two hospitals in the state to offer this cutting-edge technology in the Women’s Imaging and Breast Center.
