Hospitalist establishes practice with Indiana Heart Physicians

INDIANAPOLIS – Louis F. Landman, MD, has joined Franciscan Physician Network Indiana Heart Physicians (IHP).

He is the first to be part of the newly established Cardiovascular Hospitalist Program, which teams Landman with back-up interventional cardiologists to admit and consult on patients overnight. Hospitalists specialize in the care of patients in the hospital. 

IHP created the program to make its cardiologists more available to Franciscan St. Francis Heart Center patients during day time hours. This approach improves continuity of care for patients who have been admitted overnight.

Landman most recently served as a hospitalist with Bluffton Regional Medical Center and also served as director of the hospital’s continuing care program and rehabilitation services.

A resident of Indianapolis, Landman received his undergraduate degree at Indiana University and earned his medical degree from St. George’s University School of Medicine, Grenada, West Indies. He completed residency training at St. Vincent Health.

With board-certification in family medicine, and recognition of focused practice hospital medicine, Landman also has extensive training in advanced cardiac, trauma and pediatric life support. He is a member of the Society of Hospital Medicine, Society of Critical Care Medicine, American Medical Association, Indiana State Medical Association and the American Academy of Family Physicians.
