Pointe Coupee Hospice is excited to announce that Dr. Ashley Doucet Bordelon has accepted the position as the agency’s new Medical Director and hospice physician. Dr. Bordelon is the successor to Pointe Coupee Hospice’s beloved Dr. Robert N. Helm who passed away in May of this year.
Pointe Coupee Hospice is pleased that Dr. Bordelon has accepted the position, and the agency is certain that she will be a tremendous asset to the hospice team.
A New Roads native, Dr. Ashley Bordelon attended Louisiana State University for her undergraduate degree, where she graduated Magna Cum Laude in 2008.
Afterwards, moving from the Red Stick to the Crescent City, she earned her Medical Degree from the LSU Health Sciences Center-New Orleans in 2012.
Dr. Bordelon performed her Residency in Internal Medicine at the Our Lady of the Lake Regional Medical Center in Baton Rouge, LA. In the summer of 2015, she joined The Baton Rouge Clinic in New Roads with her father, Dr. Donald Doucet. Dr. Bordelon is a member of the American College of Physicians, the Louisiana State Medical Society, and the Pointe Coupee Parish Medical Society. Dr. Bordelon is licensed to practice in the state of Louisiana and is Board Certified in Internal Medicine. She is married to Gerald Bordelon from Morganza, LA and they are expecting their first child this fall.
“Although, no one can ever replace Dr. Helm and the relationship we had with him, we are all very excited to welcome Dr. Bordelon as our new Hospice Medical Director. Adding another role to an already busy practice could not have been an easy decision, but Dr. Bordelon shares the same caring and compassion as we do for our hospice patients,” said Jeanine Thibodeaux, RN, Agency Administrator. “You give back to the community when you care about them, and so many from our parish receive hospice services. It is an honor for Pointe Coupee Hospice to have the opportunity to care for our parish residents at such a precious time in their lives. Dr. Bordelon’s expertise and guidance is surely appreciated by our staff, and we all look forward to working closely with her,” Thibodeaux added.
Pointe Coupee Hospice was established as part of the Pointe Coupee Parish Hospital Service District in 2001 to provide local hospice care to this community. Dr. Paul Rachal was the agency’s first medical director. In November 2005, Dr. Rachal turned over his position as medical director to Dr. Robert Helm who had recently retired from his private family medicine practice. Dr. Ashley Bordelon becomes the third medical director since the agency’s inception.
