Physicians and staff of Indianapolis-based Public Safety Medical have joined the St. Vincent Health, Wellness and Preventive Care Institute. Public Safety Medical provides services for fire, law enforcement and EMS personnel, and is the largest medical practice of its kind in the country. PSM was founded in the early 1990's by Steven Moffatt after his practice detected heart disease before heart attacks, early stage cancers, and injury numbers from local firefighters began to decline.

“We are at a very critical time in understanding how the important work of our first responders affect their medical and psychological wellbeing, said Dr. Steven Moffatt, President, Public Safety Medical. “These individuals have some of the most stressful and dangerous professions in the U.S.  This stress, along with their exposures, can increase their incidence and risk of cancer, cardiac disease, depression and suicide as compared to the general population. I am convinced that our mission to protect and improve the health and safety of Indiana’s first responders is a noble effort and that St. Vincent brings the strength and resources needed to shape the future.”

St. Vincent has history of working with organizations and companies to keep staff healthy through its Executive Health program along with onsite clinics. St. Vincent currently has a partnership with 60 employers in the state.

“We are extremely impressed with the work PSM has provided in helping to improve the lives of our first responders over the years,” said Jonathan Nalli, CEO, St. Vincent. “This work dovetails with the prevention and wellness initiatives taking place at our St. Vincent Wellness Institute, which will only strengthen how we care for the entire community.”

PSM signage on all properties will remain until next year.
