Physician joins Indiana Heart Physicians as a hospitalist

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Emmanuel Sarpong, MD, has joined Franciscan Physician Network Indiana Heart Physicians (IHP) as a hospitalist.

He is part of the newly established Cardiovascular Hospitalist Program, which will team him with interventional cardiologists to admit and consult on patients overnight. Hospitalists specialize in the care of patients in the hospital. 

IHP created the hospitalist 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.

Sarpong earned his medical degree at the University of Ghana Medical School and is board-certified in internal medicine.

He completed an internal medicine residency at John Stroger Junior Hospital in Cook County, Ill., and prior to joining IHP, Dr. Sarpong was the program director of the hospitalist program at Indiana University Morgan Hospital.

Sarpong is a Fellow in the American College of Physicians and holds memberships in the Society of General Internal Medicine and the American College of Physicians.

Indiana Heart Physicians has offices in Indianapolis, Franklin, Greensburg, Martinsville. Mooresville and Shelbyville.
