Located in a relatively rural part of Louisiana, Thibodaux Regional Health System continues to be a leader in health and wellness with its impressive growth. Under the leadership of CEO Greg Stock, innovation continues to propel Thibodaux Regional forward. Stock’s relentless pursuit of excellence has yielded extraordinary results. For example, Thibodaux Regional has been recognized by CareChex as the number one hospital in Louisiana for Medical Excellence in Cardiac Care.
Thibodaux Regional recently earned Advanced Certification as a Primary Stroke Center by The Joint Commission. Thibodaux Regional is the first, and only, hospital in Region 3 (Assumption, Lafourche, St. Charles, St. James, St. John the Baptist, St. Mary, and Terrebonne Parishes) to achieve this designation, meeting the highest standards for treatment of stroke patients.
“If we truly pursue excellence and refuse to be satisfied by mediocrity, we can make a real difference in people’s lives and make a substantial positive impact on this region," says Stock.
“Thibodaux Regional has worked diligently to establish comprehensive neurosciences services to meet the needs of the region,” says Greg Stock. “We have recruited four neurologists, two neurosurgeons, and the region’s only interventional radiologist to complement existing clinical services and support staff; constructed a 30-bed acuity adaptable Critical Care Unit featuring state-of-the-art technology; and acquired advanced technology to provide minimally invasive image-guided procedures in our Interventional Radiology Suite.”
The winning culture at Thibodaux Regional continues to sustain the organization’s performance. Where does this winning culture begin? For Stock, it stems from a passion for living up to purpose. Leading a healthcare system that lives up to its purpose of positively impacting the individuals it cares for, while improving quality of life for the communities it serves, is what motivates this CEO day in and day out.
“If we truly pursue excellence and refuse to be satisfied by mediocrity, we can make a real difference in people’s lives and make a substantial positive impact on this region—we can actually realize in large measure this hospital and health system’s reason for being,” says Stock.
One key aspect of Stock’s vision has been supporting a staff who are truly committed to patient-centered care. Each individual’s commitment, passion, courage, and caring are not only inspirational, but also contagious. As each team member works toward the ultimate goal of improved health and wellness and positive outcomes for patients, each win propels the next. This desire to improve health and wellness extends deep into the community, where Thibodaux Regional supports local universities, schools, businesses, nonprofits, and much more.
