Logansport Memorial Physician Network introduces General Surgery

Logansport Memorial Hospital and the Logansport Surgical Associates have partnered together to offer General Surgery to our patients through the Logansport Memorial Physician Network. Todd Weinstein MD and Gerhardt Winkel III MD will join our staff as general surgeons, providing a full array of general surgery services, including laparoscopy/endoscopy procedures.

There has consistently been a strong partnership between the two organizations for several years, but the opportunity to join together proved to be beneficial for both parties involved. “We are glad to have this opportunity to join the hospital to continue providing the best possible care for the patients we see,” says Dr. Todd Weinstein. “As we collaborate and combine our resources, we can also improve the access our patients have to the care they need.”

“This merger also brings increased capabilities in the type of care we are able to provide,” adds Dr. Winkel. “Like any healthcare field, full-service general surgery is constantly evolving with new technologies to implement.  Complete integration of resources and technologies will only enhance the care that we deliver.”

That integration is a key priority for patient care of the future, according to hospital CEO David Ameen. “Care integration is what we are trying to achieve with any partnership we make,” he says. “It is important to us at Logansport Memorial Hospital that we be able to provide exceptional care from admission to discharge for every patient, every time. We want to deliver care that will exceed each patient’s needs and desires. That’s our vision as an organization. Partnerships like this one continue to move us closer in that direction.”

The contact information for Dr. Weinstein and Dr. Winkel will remain the same. They will be in their current office location at 820 Fulton Street. Their office can be reached by calling 574.722.3636.
