Dr. George "Ray" Williams Receives Circle of Excellence Award

The OGHS Medical Staff Circle of Excellence Award was created to acknowledge a physician who understands the challenges of practicing medicine and has the qualities and skills necessary to be an exceptional physician and leader. This award recognizes integrity, compassion, altruism, respect, empathy, and service that, combined with clinical excellence, provides optimal patient care. Opelousas General Health System is proud to recognize an exceptional physician each quarter and welcome them into the “Circle of Excellence.” 

This quarter’s winner is Dr. George “Ray” Williams of WellSmart Health Orthopaedic Clinic. His nominations are listed below. 

  • PATIENT: “Dr. Williams is EXCELLENT because he diagnosed me with a very rare disease that I have never previously had a Dr. diagnose my condition before. This impressed me greatly and gave me the confidence in him completely. After a complete review and explanation of the results, he laid out a very detailed recommended plan with a two-phase option. He asked me to think about it and let him know what I wanted to do first. It was totally up to me. He and his team were outstanding as well as the entire support group. He has a very calm and caring way about him. He is a very spiritual person and prayed over me prior to my procedure. This was very moving for my wife and I and made me feel even more assured that everything will be ok. My surgery was very successful. I’m very grateful for the care he and his professional staff gave me, and I know I’ll be in good hands in the future. He has given me a quality of life that I thought was no longer available to me; but he has proven his value time and time again. I couldn’t be happier! My wife, family and friends have commented on how lucky I was to have found someone with his expertise and wonderful track record. He was a great surgeon, and I had no complications. Complements to Opelousas General Health System and their entire staff for all your professional care.” 
  • EMPLOYEE: “Dr. Williams is EXCELLENT because he has always taken his time and gets straight to the problem and actually cares about his patients. He is so compassionate about his job. He is extremely smart and caring. Excellent patient care.” 
  • PATIENT: “Dr. Williams is EXCELLENT because he takes the time to explain things and he is so caring toward his patients. He is the only doctor that stops and prays with his patients before surgery.”

Please join us in congratulating Dr. Williams.  He is pictured from left with Lana Sylvester, Practice Supervisor; Amanda Fontenot, V.P. of Marketing and Physician Services and Ken Cochran, President & CEO.
