Gibson General Hospital is pleased to announce that it has partnered with Orthopaedic Associates to provide orthopaedic services close to home for residents of Gibson County and surrounding communities.
The partnership establishes a new office, Orthopaedic Associates at Gibson General Hospital, which will be located on the second floor of the hospital, and brings two orthopaedic surgeons to the community’s medical staff—Dr. Dennis Beck and Dr. Daniel Emerson.
“We’re excited to partner with Orthopaedic Associates to resume services for those in need of orthopaedic care,” said Emmett Schuster, President & CEO of GGH. “Orthopaedic Associates is known for their expertise and high-quality care, and we’re proud to provide convenient access to their experienced surgeons.”
Dr. Beck will see patients at the new office every other Thursday beginning Dec. 8. He is a graduate of the Indiana University School of Medicine, and completed his general surgery internship, orthopaedic surgery residency and orthopaedic trauma fellowship at the University of Louisville School of Medicine.
He joined Orthopaedic Associates in 2003 and is board-certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery (ABOS), and specializes in general orthopaedics and total joint replacement. He is one of the few surgeons in the area performing anterior hip replacement.
Dr. Emerson will see patients every other Wednesday beginning Dec. 14. He is a graduate of the Indiana University School of Medicine, and completed his orthopaedic surgery residency at Madigan Army Medical Center at Fort Lewis in Tacoma, WA.
He joined Orthopaedic Associates in 2011 and is board-certified with a subspecialty certificate in orthopaedic sports medicine by the ABOS. His interests include general orthopaedics, trauma, total joint replacement, shoulder and knee surgery and sports medicine.
Together, GGH and Orthopaedic Associates are also recruiting an orthopaedic surgeon to work full-time in the Gibson General Hospital office.
“We’re excited to be partnering with Gibson General Hospital to bring a higher level of orthopaedic care to the residents of Gibson County and the surrounding area,” said Jerry Blanton, Executive Director of Orthopaedic Associates. “We recognize the need for our services and the importance of seeing patients where they are, and we look forward to expanding on the quality health care services already available at Gibson General Hospital.”
