LMH promotes team of surgeons and comprehensive approach to orthopedics care

At Logansport Memorial Hospital (LMH), we have been hard at work to continue bringing our "Building Better Health" tagline to life. Our physicians, providers, and staff throughout the various clinics, offices, and departments, both on-campus and at our off-site locations in the surrounding counties of Miami, Fulton, and Carroll, are committed to partnering with the patients and families we serve to achieve optimal health.

That growth has built a larger team, extending the dynamic and supportive care that we can offer across the north-central Indiana region, while still keeping our patients conveniently and comfortably close to home.
