by BIZ Magazine

In a heartfelt ceremony at CHRISTUS Highland Medical Center on January 31, Casey Robertson, the newly appointed President and CEO of the CHRISTUS Shreveport-Bossier Health System, was formally commissioned and blessed by the Rev. Monsignor Rothell Price of the Catholic Diocese of Shreveport.

Monsignor Price expressed the solemnity of the occasion, acknowledging the gravity and responsibility that come with leading a health system. “I know that you and those who have asked you to serve in this role do not take this challenge lightly or without careful consideration,” Price remarked. He emphasized the significance of the commissioning, recognizing the healthcare profession as God’s work, deserving of divine grace and guidance.

“The challenges you face will be eased through a faithful following of the mission, which has served as a light for our sponsoring congregations since the original call of Bishop Dupuis,” Price added.

Casey Robertson, who assumed the role of President and CEO on December 4, brings nearly two decades of healthcare administration experience, including over 10 years at the CEO level. Prior to his current position, he served as the Chief Operating Officer at the CHRISTUS Good Shepherd Health System in Longview, Texas, for 18 months.

Reflecting on the future of healthcare in Shreveport, Robertson expressed admiration for the dedicated work of healthcare professionals. “I see the work the nurses do, I see the work the clinicians do, I see the work our doctors and our nurse practitioners and our PAs do, and it truly is the Lord’s work,” he shared. Robertson highlighted the significance of faith at CHRISTUS, expressing excitement about being part of a community where faith is lived out every day.

Chris Glenney, Senior Vice President of Group Operations for CHRISTUS Health Northeast Texas and North Louisiana, acknowledged the importance and challenges of running a health system. “The president’s job is very important and it’s a challenging job. That’s why it’s so appropriate to take the time this afternoon to take a breath, to celebrate and to really commission Casey for the significant work he has representing each one of you, representing this community and representing CHRISTUS Health,” said Glenney.
