Mayor Ames to lead new Beaumont hospital


Becky Ames, mayor of Beaumont, will become the new chief executive officer of Victory Health Center, a new specialized hospital in Beaumont where construction is just beginning. In mid-February, Victory Healthcare chairman Robert N. Helms Jr., took part in a ceremonial ground breaking for what will become a 13-bed surgical hospital. The hospital is a partnership between Victory, which has hospitals in Houston and San Antonio, and local physicians led by Golden Triangle Neurocare. Ames had attended the ground breaking, met with Victory officials and a few weeks later was contacted to talk with them about becoming the local property's chief executive.
