Logansport Memorial Hospital welcomes three new Nurse Practitioners

Logansport Memorial Hospital continues to expand its network of providers who become part of the Logansport Memorial Physician Network. By increasing the number of providers who are part of our staff, we also hope to increase access to the care that our community needs – giving patients more options for receiving the care they need, where and when they need it. This also aligns with our priority for increasing access to care that is part of the 2013 Community Health Needs Assessment.

LMH is pleased to welcome the following providers to our staff.

BiceKimberly Bice, NP
Kimberly Bice completed her MSN as a Family Nurse Practitioner in 2013 at the Indiana University School of Nursing. Kim has experience caring for patients of all ages in a variety of nursing roles, from babies and kids to adults and seniors. She can treat patients for urgent needs like stitches, rashes, and sore throats while also helping patients with health maintenance. Additionally, some of that experience comes from raising her seven children with her husband, Kenny. In her free time, she enjoys running and exercising with her husband and kids. Kim was born and raised in Logansport, and has lived here for her entire life. She is looking                                                                             forward to taking care of patients right here in our community.

Kim joins the staff at ExpressMed in Logansport, and began seeing patients full-time on September 1, 2014. She accepts walk-in patients only. ExpressMed Logansport clinic hours are from 9 am – 7 pm Monday through Friday, 10 am – 6 pm Saturday, and Noon – 6 pm on Sunday.

EwingRose Ewing, NP
Rose Ewing completed her MSN as a Family Nurse Practitioner in 1998 at Indiana Wesleyan University. She has been in the nursing profession for over 30 years, spending the last 16 of them as a nurse practitioner. Rose comes to Logansport Memorial Hospital from St. Vincent, where she most recently practiced as a nurse practitioner in the hospitalist program. In her role as an NP, Rose enjoys working closely with patients and their families to educate them on their disease process and prevention. When she is not working, Rose may be spending time with either of her two children, or two grandchildren. She and her husband have been married for 27 years                                                                     and live on a mini-farm, with chickens and horses.

LoweRob Lowe, NP
Rob Lowe completed his MSN as an Acute Care Nurse Practitioner in 2011 from the University of South Alabama. He has experience in several clinical areas, including emergency medicine, cardiology, neurology, gastroenterology, and endocrinology. He is a National Registered Paramedic and a Life Support Instructor in three areas – Basic, Advanced Cardiac, and Pediatric Advanced. When asked about what brought him to Logansport, Rob noted that he was impressed by LMH for advertising about a position for an acute care nurse practitioner (ACNP). ACNPs are relatively new to this part of Indiana, but LMH is seeking to incorporate them as part of the recently                                                                               established hospitalist program. He appreciated the innovative                                                                             nature of medicine that LMH hopes to provide for this rural area.

Both Rose Ewing and Rob Lowe are part of our LMPN Hospitalist program, joining two full-time internal medicine physicians Dr. Benjamin Anderson and Dr. Vivek Sahgal.
