Registered Respiratory Therapist Gerald has received the North Oaks Health
System Employee of the Month Award for June 2017.
"I treat patients the way I would want to be treated ... with respect,
dignity and care," Gerald shares.
Gerald joined the North Oaks Medical Center Respiratory Care team in 2005
as a Registered Respiratory Therapist.
Originally from New Orleans, he earned an associate degree in Respiratory
Therapy from Delgado Community College, New Orleans.

diagnosis with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease.
Gerald and his wife Victoria live in Slidell and have two children –
Cailin, 19; and Hannah, 17.
Away from work, Gerald dedicates his time to his family. He enjoys “sleeping
in” and completing DIY projects around his family’s home.
“Gerald is an extraordinary leader," affirms Respiratory Care
Clinical Manager Wendy Helms. "As one of our charge therapists, he
motivates with enthusiasm and delivers care of uncompromised quality.”
