The NeuroMedical Center Clinic announced Benjamin Boudreaux is its new chief executive officer. Boudreaux succeeds former CEO, Nancy M. Kelly, who held the clinic’s top leadership role for 33 years before retiring in late 2018. Boudreaux officially joined The NeuroMedical Center Clinic on March 4.
Boudreaux was selected as the new CEO following a comprehensive national search led by the clinic’s board of directors.

“It is truly an honor to serve the great communities of Louisiana as The NeuroMedical Center Clinic’s new CEO,” said Boudreaux. “Over the past 40 years, The NeuroMedical Center has set the bar as the region’s leading provider of world-class neurological care. I look forward to contributing to the great work of our physicians, staff, and leaders past to further advance access to high-quality neurological care and services in South Louisiana.”
