TGMC receives 2019 Women’s Choice Award highlighting orthopedics

Terrebonne General Medical Center (TGMC) recently received the 2019 Women’s Choice Award as one of America’s Best Hospitals for Orthopedics. This evidence-based designation is the only orthopedics award that identifies the country’s best healthcare institutions based on robust criteria that considers patient satisfaction, clinical excellence and women’s expectations from their hospital. This award signifies that TGMC is in the top 10% of U.S. hospitals offering orthopedics services.

“We are so excited to hear that our patients, especially females who are the primary healthcare decision makers for their families, recognize the comprehensive and innovative care our sports medicine and orthopedics services strive so hard to deliver,” said Phyllis Peoples, President and CEO. “With our highly skilled physicians and the dedication of our staff  our team is  able to provide the most comprehensive services in southeast Louisiana and are honored to receive the Women’s Choice Award for the fourth year in a row.”

TGMC’s orthopedic and sports medicine services include the state-of-the-art Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Caring MR Suite Imaging Area as well as and Open MRI which enhance the patient experience of receiving an MRI by providing clearer images, more patient comfort and noise reduction, to name a few. The TGMC Community Sports Institute also plays an active role providing athletic training resources, concussion screenings, and more to area schools.



The 2019 America’s Best Hospitals for Orthopedics are hospitals that provide comprehensive orthopedics services, indicating a minimal number of arthroscopy, joint replacements and spine surgery services, as well as offering onsite MRI and physical therapy. These full service hospitals are ranked based on their results through the Hospital Consumer Assessment for Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) survey for patient recommendations and post-operative recovery instructions, measures that are very important to women when choosing a hospital for their family.
