St.Vincent Dunn Hospital: A tradition of surgical excellence
Providing Lawrence County with top-notch surgical care for more than 100 years.
Over the years, Lawrence County has experienced substantial population growth. To meet the needs of the expanding community, St.Vincent Dunn Hospital has grown as well. Today, we're providing our community with comprehensive healthcare services, which include a full range of surgical care performed by some of the area's leading surgeons.
One of those surgeons, Dr. Alexander Mathew, has been part of the St.Vincent Dunn Hospital surgery team for more than 16 years. "St.Vincent Dunn Hospital is an outstanding place," Dr. Mathew said. "I'm really privileged to be able to practice here. The people are great, the community is friendly and our facilities are as good as any in the state."
As part of an expert team of surgeons, Dr. Mathew specializes in breast surgery, endoscopies, thyroid surgery, advanced laparoscopic surgery, colonoscopies, hernia surgery and treatment of varicose veins. He has a special interest in Anti-reflux procedures. When asked why a patient might choose St.Vincent Dunn Hospital over another facility for surgery, Dr. Mathew didn't hesitate.
"Even though we're in a relatively small community compared to, Indianapolis, we offer advanced, cutting-edge surgery services," he said. "But it's also more than that. People come here because it's where they are comfortable. They develop strong relationships with our staff that last many years. And strong relationships should be at the foundation of any hospital."
In addition to the community of Lawrence County, Dr. Mathew has a deep appreciation for the staff at St.Vincent Dunn Hospital. "Our physicians are some of the best in the state," he said. "They're careful, thoughtful and compassionate. I have great faith in the doctors here."
In fact, when Dr. Mathew's own young children needed surgery, he didn't think twice about where to take them. "No question—St.Vincent Dunn Hospital," he said. "I didn't even consider taking them anywhere else."
