We embrace our
unique culture

“My family and I have enjoyed living in Houma for the past six years. We adapted well to the unique Cajun culture and rewarding career opportunities at TGMC. Being an avid fisherman, this area is a sportsman’s dream for me, and I’m delighted to call Houma home!”

— Dr. Ben Adams, Anesthesiologist
