Healthcare in #NWI is competitive with some high-quality medical providers. According to Dardeau, the competition raises the bar for healthcare providers on quality and customer service to benefit everyone in the Region.
Before becoming Market CEO of Porter Health Care System, Sean Dardeau spent nearly three decades working to improve healthcare in his community. Since joining the team at Porter, Dardeau and his family love their new home in #NWI.
Thanks to Porter Health Care System’s network of hospitals (including sister hospitals in La Porte and Knox), patients will begin to have a more integrated healthcare experience. And, the health system has added more than 30 new providers, including a neurosurgeon at Porter Regional Hospital. Looking ahead, Porter Health Care System is working to foster high-quality communication between the hospital and other providers to keep you healthy.
Dardeau came to Porter with a plan, which included building a team and adding new physicians from the Region with local values. Part of his plan included maximizing programs the hospital already offers to better serve their patients.
