Laura Tarantino, executive vice president and general counsel for Oceans Healthcare, has been named a finalist for D CEO’s 2017 Corporate Counsel Awards program. The program, now in its eighth year, honors outstanding in-house attorneys in the North Texas region.
“I am honored by this recognition and grateful for the opportunity it affords me to shine a light on the issue of behavioral health access in our communities,” Tarantino said.
Tarantino has more than 20 years of experience managing the legal and regulatory functions of privately held healthcare and commercial insurance services companies. In 2014, she joined Oceans Healthcare, a nationally recognized behavioral health provider focused on the long-term healing and recovery of older adults and seniors, where she manages the company’s legal and regulatory functions.
She has since guided Oceans through a period of growth and numerous acquisitions that have marked it as one of the fastest-growing mid-size companies in North Texas for the last two years.
Tarantino, who was recently named president elect of the Louisiana Association for Behavioral Health (LABH), firmly believes in expanding access to behavioral health services for the most vulnerable patients in the communities Oceans serves. She helps Oceans’ 15 hospitals in Louisiana and Texas work with local mental health advocates and community leaders to advocate for proper adherence to admissions laws and policies.
“Not only is Laura an integral part of our company’s leadership team, I am proud to call her a true friend,” said CEO Stuart Archer. “She sets an example for all others in our organization by supporting her fellow teammates and dedicating her work to ensuring individuals most in need get the help and behavioral health treatment they deserve.”
