Mayor Charles Caillouet, the Thibodaux City Council, and all employees of the City of Thibodaux kicked off the new Vision for the City of Thibodaux on Thursday, November 6, 2003 at 1:30 in the Thibodaux Civic Center.
“Our vision for the City of Thibodaux is to be the community of choice for people to prosper and enjoy life.”
Modeling their platform from Thibodaux Regional Medical Center, 15 employees were chosen to author Standards of Performance, a document that outlines the standards by which all employees of the City of Thibodaux must adopt in their everyday work routine.A skit entitled, “Mission:Possible” was performed at Thursday’s kick off as a way to introduce these standards to all employees.
Mayor Caillouet stated, “If Thibodaux Regional can be ranked in the top 1% of patient satisfaction in the country using this platform, the City of Thibodaux can rank in the top 1% of citizen satisfaction in the country.”Thibodaux Regional began their campaign several years ago with a similar program gleaned from successful companies such as General Electric, the Ritz-Carlton, and John Deere.CEO of Thibodaux Regional, Greg Stock, describes the success as a transformation of how the hospital operated and how all personnel and staff adopted behavioral standards, created by teams of employees of the hospital in order to accomplish its new vision.
The schedule of events for the presentation by the City of Thibodaux included the presentation of “Mission:Possible”, comments by Human Resource Director, Lillie Young; Mayor Charles Caillouet, Council President Jerome “Dee” Richard, and Thibodaux Regional’s Assistant Administrator of Patient Care Services, Brenda Arceneaux.

WOW!! KEY EMPLOYEE!
Dear Chief Robertson:
The purpose of this letter is to express my profound appreciation to your department for its high quality of service to our great city and its residents.
I would like also to extend my deepest gratitude to your Officer Todd M. Gagnard, who came to my residence as per my telephone request to your department on October 25, 2003 at 5pm to resolve an apparent problem I had with my landlord ….
It was a great pleasure and distinct honor for me to meet Officer Gagnard, in whose professionalism and effectiveness I was impressed.It is admirable of Officer Gagnard to act with extreme politeness and patience in trying to assist me within the confines of the law and your department’s rules and regulations.Officer Gagnard acted with complete confidence, cordiality, and professionalism, and with extreme care for my health and safety.He is truly an honorable officer, and should be an honor to your department.The manner by which Officer Gagnard acted also speaks of your high quality of leadership to have trained and developed public servants, such as him.
In the past twelve years, I have had the pleasure of occasionally meeting your officers, and I must admit they, and especially officer Gagnard set role models among police officers in this great country of ours.
I hope that you take a few minutes of your time to thank and congratulate him on my behalf for his professionalism ….He has the promise of becoming a great leader in the near future.
Sincerely, (signature of author)
