Terrebonne General Medical Center (TGMC) honors Melanie Guilbeaux as the second Leader of the Quarter for 2019. Guilbeaux is the Director of Mary Bird Perkins TGMC Cancer Center, and has been in this position for almost five years.  

In an effort to recognize outstanding leaders, TGMC implemented the Leader of the Quarter award. Recipients demonstrate outstanding and consistent commitment to the wellbeing of our patients, their extended families and staff.

Guilbeaux serves as a role model to everyone in the clinic by always finding ways to bring everyone closer with positive/constructive communication, implements rules and regulations, and goes above and beyond to find resources to continuously give her team new education.

“I feel honored, blessed and humbled,” says Guilbeaux. “I truly love my co-workers, administrators and patients at TGMC, the support and team oriented culture is amazing.”
