The Tangipahoa Parish Council has appointed Ron Orsi, a resident of Loranger
and retired businessman, to the
Board of Commissioners for North Oaks Health System. North Oaks also is known as Hospital Service
District No. 1 of Tangipahoa Parish.
Orsi was appointed at the council’s June 10 meeting to replace Independence
businessman Roger Navarra, who resigned from the board for personal reasons.
Orsi fills Navarra’s unexpired six-year term, which began Aug. 27, 2018.
“I am excited about the opportunity to serve our community and look
forward to working with the leaders of the North Oaks Health System,”
A native of the Chicago area, Orsi owned and operated a successful irrigation
business in Dallas, Texas, for 11 years. In 1984, he sold his irrigation
business and relocated to Loranger with his wife Robbie, who has South
Louisiana roots, and their two children. For the next 32 years, he worked
as a manufacturer’s sales representative before retiring in 2017.
The proud grandfather of seven grandchildren, Orsi also is a parishioner
of St. Dominic Catholic Church in Husser.
Other North Oaks Board of Commissioners members are Chairman Ron Macaluso,
JD, and Vice Chairman Ann Carruth, DNS, RN, of Hammond; Robert Barsley,
DDS, JD, and Blake Daniels of Ponchatoula; Terry Harper of Loranger; and
Joycelyn Lee, RPh, of Hammond.
