Dr. Nicholas Nussbaum ’01 of Adams Medical Group, a division of Adams Memorial Hospital in Decatur, was recently promoted to director of medical affairs for community services.
His new responsibilities include physician and advanced practice provider leadership and coordination at all Adams Medical Group outpatient locations. As a physician leader, he will be responsible for the alignment of provider teams to the Adams Health Network mission and vision.
To achieve this goal, Nussbaum will facilitate provider success through an emphasis on quality of care, patient experience, and patient access to care.
Nussbaum is a life-long Adams County resident, returning to the area in 2008 as an employed physician for Adams Memorial in Monroe. Following significant growth at the Monroe office, he became medical director of the Monroe location with its transition to a federally qualified Rural Health Clinic. With further growth in Adams Medical Group, he became the Medical Director of Rural Health and Primary Care in 2018.
“His new role as director of medical affairs for community services is an expansion of his prior primary care role to include outpatient specialty providers and clinics,” Adams Memorial Hospital officials wrote in a Facebook post.
Nussbaum is Board Certified in Family Medicine and is a 1997 graduate of South Adams High School. He completed his undergraduate degree from Wabash College, where he studied religion and was a member of Lambda Chi Alpha. He then graduated from Indiana University School of Medicine in 2005.
He completed his Family Medicine Residency in 2008 at Ball Memorial Hospital in Muncie.
