“We want [patients] to understand,” she said, “that they can get specialized care right here at home, without needing to drive to Indianapolis or some other larger community. We want them to be aware of the resources that are available right here in Decatur County.”
Ayon came to DCMH in 2010, part of a private hematology/oncology group that was eventually purchased by IU Health. His first few years at DCMH, Ayon saw patients once a week. He recently increased that to two days weekly, telling the Daily News his Decatur County practice has recently been growing sufficiently to merit the increase.
He’s also become a partner of the Franciscan Physician Network (FPN), based out of St. Francis Hospital, Indianapolis. DCMH partners with St. Francis through many specialties, and only recently added hematology/oncology to that list, explained FPN operations director Rita Nevitt, who also sat in on Ayon’s interview.
