Medical Center of Southeast Texas names new president

The Medical Center of Southeast Texas announced Carl “Bo” Beaudry as its new president on Monday, July 9.

As president, Beaudry will oversee both the Port Arthur and Beaumont campuses of The Medical Center of Southeast Texas.

“As a Golden Triangle native, I am grateful for the opportunity to return home and serve our community with pride and compassion,” said Beaudry.

Beaudry was born and raised in the Beaumont/Port Arthur community. He graduated from Texas A&M University with a Bachelor of Science and earned his MBA at Lamar University in Beaumont. Beaudry began his career at The Medical Center of Southeast Texas as an assistant accountant and moved on to managing a physician practice before becoming the associate administrator at Southwest General Hospital in San Antonio. For five years, he has served as chief operating officer, and most recently interim president at St. Joseph Medical Center in Houston.

Richard Gonzalez, past president of The Medical Center of Southeast Texas, will be taking on a regional role for Steward Health Care assisting the West Division president, Josh Putter. Gonzalez has been with the company for over 15 years, serving as president of The Medical Center of Southeast Texas since 2014. He oversaw the hospital’s expansion into the Beaumont market with the acquisition of Victory Healthcare, helped the hospital remain open during Hurricane Harvey and oversaw the implementation of an all-encompassing electronic health records system across all platforms of patient care.

“It has been a privilege to serve The Medical Center of Southeast Texas and the Southeast Texas community,” said Gonzalez. “While I prepare for the next chapter in my career, I am confident that The Medical Center of Southeast Texas has a promising future with Bo at the helm.”
