Hall of Fame

2023 Hall of Fame Gala

The Opelousas General Health System Foundation Hall of Fame provides a forum for the hospital to recognize, celebrate and publicize the work of exemplary individuals whose longstanding contributions have lasting impact on the hospital, the community and the patients we serve. The awards will be presented at the Annual Hall of Fame Gala.

The 2023 Hall of Fame Gala will be held on February 10, 2023. Click HERE for more information.

The OGHS Foundation Hall of Fame Gala celebrates the successes of the over 60 years of care provided by Opelousas General Health System. Those successes would not have been possible without the care, support and commitment of people who gave selflessly to their patients and community. The Hall of Fame Gala provides an opportunity to celebrate its' inductees with a cocktail hour, live music, dinner and presentation program.

Inductees are retired members of the Board of Trustees, physicians or employees that are nominated by the community. A special committee of the Board of Trustees and OGHS Foundation Board selects the final inductees for each year. The Hall of Fame Gala wants to recognize, celebrate and spotlight the work of exemplary individuals whose contributions have a lasting impact on the hospital, the community and the patients we serve.
