Hospitalist joins the ranks at St. Francis Hospital-Mooresville

MOORESVILLE, Ind. – Reva Sharma, M.D., a member of St. Francis Medical Group, has joined the medical staff at St. Francis Hospital-Mooresville.

She comes to her new position after serving as a hospitalist with Good Samaritan Hospital in Vincennes, Ind. An internist, Sharma has held positions with the Vincennes Medical Corp., Medical Center of Vincennes, and was attending physician and clinical instructor at Mount Sinai Hospital and University Hospitals of Cleveland in Ohio.

Sharma will join Peter Turlo, M.D., and Daniel DeSalle, M.D., at the Mooresville campus at the Internal Medicine Perioperative and Consultation Treatment Center.

Hospitalists are physicians whose practice focuses on general medical care for hospitalized patients. Hospitalists are more accessible to nursing staff, families and colleagues because they spend most of their workday in the hospital; whereas, most doctors maintain separate office practices.

Board-certified in internal medicine, Sharma earned her medical degree at the Lady Harding Medical School at Delhi University, New Delhi, India. She completed her residency at Mount Sinai and University Hospitals of Cleveland.

She is a member of the American College of Physicians.
