Richard Rathbone MD
We are so honored to have Dr. Richard Rathbone as Gulf Coast’s Medical Director. With over 35 years of medical practice, he brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the GCOM family. As a lifelong resident of the Baton Rouge area and with several family ties to the oil and gas industry, Dr. Rathbone is proud and overjoyed to be serving his community through Gulf Coast. His most notable accomplishments include serving as medical director at Champion Hospital in Baton Rouge as well as several nursing facilities throughout the East Feliciana region. In addition, he has also served as the Chief of Staff at Lane Memorial Hospital twice in his tenure. Perhaps one of Dr. Rathbone’s proudest accomplishments (aside from his beautiful wife, 6 children, and 12 grandchildren) is reigning as the Episcopal High School Touchdown King holding the record for most touchdowns thrown in a season.
