INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana – Two specialty care physicians will soon be honored with the 2015 Distinguished Service Award presented by Franciscan St. Francis Health.

E. Michael Keating, MD, is a retired orthopedic surgeon from the Center for Hip & Knee Surgery and Joint Replacement Surgeons, a practice of Franciscan Physician Network. The second honoree, David C. Pound, MD, is a gastroenterologist with Indianapolis Gastroenterology and Hepatology Inc.

Dr. Keating retired from practice in early 2015 after practicing in Mooresville for more than 25 years. He attended medical school and completed his residency training at Louisiana State University in Shreveport. He later served as assistant professor of orthopedics at LSU.

A member of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, Dr. Keating has served as chairman of the program committee for The Knee Society.

He also serves as president of the Indianapolis Gastroenterology Research Foundation and is a board member of Franciscan Alliance in Central Indiana.

“These two physicians have been devoted to excellence in patient care,” said Christopher Doehring, MD, vice president of medical affairs. “Their many years of service and commitment to enhance the quality of care reflects a vibrant dedication to the mission of the Sisters of St. Francis of Perpetual Adoration.”

Drs. Keating and Pound will be honored with a celebration on Jan. 30 at the Regions Tower in downtown Indianapolis.
