Larry Stansberry of New Orleans is the Chief Executive Officer at St. Margaret’s at Mercy, whose mission is to make sure that everyone has access to quality healthcare in a homelike, dignified setting, regardless of his or her station in life.
“Saint Margaret of Scotland served the vulnerable, helped to create a community of peace and love, and pioneered religious and social reform in her time,” Larry Stansberry of New Orleans explains. “Bearing her name, St. Margaret’s has emulated the feats of its patroness in the New Orleans community since 1931.” He says that the people they serve at St. Margaret’s become more that just patients or acquaintances; they are friends and neighbors. “One step further,” he adds. “They are our family – our brothers and sisters, aunts and uncles, grandmas and grandpas.”
He has been the CEO of St. Margaret’s since 2001. Before that, he was the Program Director for the Archdiocese of New Orleans, where he provided overall project management including strategic planning, funding development, marketing, and supervision of the program’s staff.
From 1996 to 1999, Larry Stansberry of New Orleans was the Executive Director at St. Judge’s Healthcare Management in Gretna, Louisiana, where he provided management services and strategic planning, marketing, budgeting, billing, accounting, and other services to health care facilities in Louisiana, Mississippi and Florida.
He received his education at Our Lady of Holy Cross College in New Orleans, where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Social Sciences. He went on to earn two graduate degrees. He studied in the Master of Science program in Biological Science from Loyola University, and earned a Master of Health Care Administration degree from Tulane.
