“We are pleased to welcome this esteemed group of physicians and their 59-member staff into Porter Physician Group,” said Nalli. “All have well-established reputations as exceptionally skilled, dedicated and compassionate leaders in the medical community. These physicians and their well-trained staff have made a difference in the lives of so many patients for more than a decade. We are proud to have them aboard as an integral part of the hospital’s Center for Cardiovascular Medicine.”
Described by Porter Health Care as a “heart hospital within a hospital,” the Center for Cardiovascular Medicine is located on the first floor of the new Porter Regional Hospital and provides advanced cardiovascular medicine in one centralized location. The center has received national recognition and accolades from the American Heart Association, Blue Cross and Blue Shield Distinction, Society of Chest Pain Centers, and the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation. Most recently, Porter was awarded advanced certification in heart failure from The Joint Commission (the first hospital in northern Indiana and the second in the state to receive this honor).
