Gulf Coast Enterprises

Gulf Coast Enterprises is a unit of the vocational services division of Lakeview Center, a social services provider affiliated with Baptist Health Care. GCE operates in 10 states and the District of Columbia, providing food and other support services to government and commercial clients, primarily the military.

GCE supports the vocational services unit by hiring, training and deploying a workforce composed mostly of disabled individuals, especially military veterans disabled in combat. Foodservice is the primary business, employing more than half of the unit’s 1,900-person staff. Other services offered by GCE include administrative support, custodial, facilities management and hospital housekeeping.

In the past year, GCE has continued to grow its senior care and healthcare business aggressively and has begun developing a complete clinical nutrition team that is expected to be fully ready by summer 2014.
