The Medical Center of Southeast Texas announces Carl "Bo" Beaudry as President of The Medical Center of Southeast Texas. As President, Beaudry will oversee both the Port Arthur and Beaumont campuses of The Medical Center of Southeast Texas.
Between two campuses, The Medical Center of Southeast Texas includes 216 beds, more than 900 employees, partners with over 300 physicians, provides care for over 90,000 lives a year and has earned numerous distinctions for quality including accreditations for Chest Pain, Stroke, Emergency, Neonatal Intensive Care and Orthopedics.
"I am honored to accept the position as President of The Medical Center of Southeast Texas. I look forward to expanding service lines, cultivating strong relationships in the community and building on the nationally recognized quality and safety standards of both Hospitals. As a Golden Triangle native, I am grateful for the opportunity to return home and serve our community with pride and compassion," said Beaudry.
Beaudry was born and raised in the Beaumont/Port Arthur community. He graduated from Texas A&M University with a Bachelor of Science Degree and earned his MBA at Lamar University in Beaumont. Beaudry began his career at The Medical Center of Southeast Texas as an assistant accountant and moved on to managing a physician practice before becoming the Associate Administrator at Southwest General Hospital in San Antonio, Texas. For the past 5 years, he has served as the Chief Operating Officer, and most recently Interim President at St. Joseph Medical Center in Houston, Texas.
Richard Gonzalez, the past President of The Medical Center of Southeast Texas, will be taking on a regional role for Steward Health Care assisting the West Division President, Josh Putter. Gonzalez has been with the company for over 15 years, serving as President of The Medical Center of Southeast Texas since 2014. He oversaw the hospital’s expansion into the Beaumont market with the acquisition of Victory Healthcare, successfully spearheaded the hospital as one of
the only SETX hospitals in the area to remain open through the duration of Hurricane Harvey and oversaw the implementation of an all-encompassing Electronic Health Records system across all platforms of patient care. "It has been a privilege to serve The Medical Center of Southeast Texas and the Southeast Texas community," said Gonzalez. "While I prepare for the next chapter in my career, I am confident that The Medical Center of Southeast Texas has a promising future with Bo at the helm."
