PRESS RELEASE – ORTHOPAEDIC INSTITUTE OF SOUTHERN ILLINOIS
September 28, 2021
The Orthopaedic Institute of Southern Illinois (OISI) is excited to announce the expansion of our clinic at Harrisburg Medical Center (HMC). For many years, OISI has partnered with Harrisburg Medical to provide orthopaedic services both in an outpatient clinic setting as well as covering calls through their emergency room. Through this partnership, many residents of Saline, Gallatin, Pope and Hardin counties have been able to receive care close to home. Moving forward, Harrisburg is looking to expand orthopaedic services by providing surgical care right there at the Medical Center. “This is a way for us to continue keeping patients at home by receiving state-of-the-art orthopaedic care in our hospital,” said Don Hutson, Harrisburg Medical Center’s Chief Executive Officer. “Dr. Mike Davis has been caring for our Southeastern Illinois patients in our Specialty Clinic for some time now and we are excited to take it a step further to complete those surgeries at HMC.”
Southern Illinois Healthcare (SIH) recently completed an affiliation with HMC in August of 2021 and has been strategically working with OISI over the past year to expand orthopaedic services in Southern Illinois. “To continue providing high quality orthopaedics through strong partnerships we have with SIH is important to the Orthopaedic Institute. We are excited to expand our services in the Harrisburg market to bring full-scale orthopaedic services in the community,” said Justin Harris, OISI’s Chief Executive Officer.
While Dr. Mike Davis, M.D. has been seeing patients at the Harrisburg Medical Center’s Specialty Clinic over the past year, he will begin to care for his patients surgically beginning October 1, 2021. Dr. Davis has been in the Southern Illinois community for over 30 years and has a passion serving those with general orthopaedic conditions and specifically those with hip and knee pain. He is currently seeing patients in Harrisburg on Friday and will continue seeing patients at the OISI Herrin and Carbondale offices.
