Robicheaux said, “My family and I are looking forward to making our home in Matagorda County, and we’re excited to find our place in the community. I’m also looking forward to continuing the great work that has already been done at the hospital while exploring new ways to improve service, quality, and access. I could tell during the interview process that the local care teams are ready to move forward, and I’m eager to jump in and get started.”
