Our Dedicated Team

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
​​

The IHA team has never been stronger.

We are proud of the team we have assembled at IHA. We are a group defined by experience and expertise; a team that collaborates daily on the issues affecting our members and their patients.

We’ve served in the Indiana House of Representatives, the state senate, and in-hospital administration. We’ve taught at universities, worked in financial firms, law firms, and marketing firms. Although we come from diverse backgrounds, we share one common goal: we want to make the world a better place through improving health care in Indiana.  Browse the staff directory below or use the contact us form.
