Physician establishes practice with Indiana Heart Physicians

INDIANAPOLIS – Jerome J. Cordova, 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.

Board-eligible in internal medicine, Dr. Cordova completed an internal medicine residency at the University of New Mexico-Albuquerque, where he also earned his medical degree and undergraduate degree in chemical engineering.

He is a member of the American Medical Association and American College of Physicians.

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

Franciscan Physician Network is a division of the Mishawaka, Ind.-based Franciscan Alliance. To learn more about network primary and specialty care services in central Indiana, go to
