BATON ROUGE, La. – Baton Rouge General Physicians (BRGP) announced
changes to its executive leadership today. Sean Casteel, who has served
as BRGP’s Administrative Director since 2016, has been promoted

patient care, implementing new processes to ensure patient and employee
safety at BRGP’s primary care and specialty clinics, while also

said President and CEO Edgardo Tenreiro. “He has been instrumental
in helping us expand as well as recruit new physicians for the hospital.”
