Terrebonne General Medical Center (TGMC) unveiled a new business brand which includes a new name and new logo identity. The new business brand, Terrebonne General Health System, better reflects their role as a community resource that can deliver both hospital care and preventive care, while also providing basic healthcare needs offsite.
Terrebonne General is a 321-bed facility, with more than 200 physicians, 1,500 employees, and 144,000 admissions, annually. Meeting the needs of patients, community, and the region, their locations of service and models of care continue to evolve. “To better reflect the size and scope of our vision to provide medical care where care is needed, both within and outside the walls of the medical center, Terrebonne General Medical Center’s name is expanding to Terrebonne General Health System, said Phyllis Peoples, president and CEO.
The new logo represents Terrebonne General’s expansive presence. The icon is in the shape of a medical cross, formed by two intersecting heart shapes. The inner intersection of the hearts forms a leaf, representing the native oak trees found on the campus, and symbolizing the “long-lasting and trusted legacy” of Terrebonne General.
The new logo will be accompanied by the tagline, “Modern technology. Timeless caring.”
With the new name comes many other changes that will help Terrebonne General to better serve the people of our region. Developments that are underway include expanding the Terrebonne General Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center, establishing physician multi-specialty clinics, and building on and off-site facilities to make it more convenient for our patients to fill prescriptions and perform various types of tests.
“TGMC has evolved, and the term ‘medical center’ no longer accurately reflects what we do,” said Peoples. “We’re becoming more of a health partner that offers both preventive care and hospital care in multiple locations.”
Peoples added, “Even with all these changes, Terrebonne General’s core mission remains the same--Offering our patient’s exceptional healthcare with compassion. The main difference is, now we’ll be able offer it to more people in more places.”
The name change is effective immediately.
