Healing Heroes: Jewish Hospital Shelbyville Providers

Among the overwhelming number of thank you messages for National Doctor's Day, were many recognitions for the providers at Jewish Hospital Shelbyville. Read a few of the messages from our KentuckyOne Health Louisville Region employees.


Dr. Chris Theuer is wonderful. He always has a smile on his face, and always shares a “good morning” or “good afternoon” with whoever he passes.

As an orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Andrew Duffee is meticulous in his procedures and extremely good with the patients.  When a hospital staff member states they would let one of the MDs take care of their own family that is a high compliment.  Without hesitation, I would allow Dr. Duffee to care for me and my family. We appreciate you, Dr. Duffee!

There is never a dull moment when Dr. Frank Martin is in the ED.  He is passionate about providing great care to our patients. 

Dr. Jonathan Goldstein is a star!  Our surgery team enjoys working with him and our patients sing his praises every month when we see the Press Ganey patient experience surveys.

Dr. Josephine Mei has been working with JHS for more than a year, and since that time helped us receive accreditation in sleep medicine. She also started our Sleep Clinic and brought a mid-level provider for patient follow-up. She loves to educate patients and they feel her genuine concern for their well-being.  We appreciate your vision, Dr. Mei!
Dr. Ron Waldridge may be downtown, but he will always be a part of the Jewish Hospital Shelbyville team!

Thank you to Dr. Aaron Satran and Dr. Chan Rangaswamy for always providing great care to our patients.

Dr. El Kheir is our new Hospitalist and is a pleasure to work with. He is doing a great job already, especially taking time with our patients and their family members to reassure them and help alleviate concerns the patient may have about their hospital stay.

We appreciate Dr. Heiko Adams! He is such an important part of our surgery team at JHS!

We were excited to welcome Dr. David McConda to our hospital this past year. He is great to work with and offers high quality surgical options for our community.
Dr. Valerie Briones-Pryor, or “Dr. Val” to all of us, is such a pleasure to work with in so many ways.  She is a positive spirit, team builder and extreme intelligence all rolled up into one great physician.

Dr. Ben Schneider is truly interested in the community, the hospital and our patients.  He volunteers every year for the Men’s Health Fair and is now president of our medical executive committee.

We appreciate Dr. Adam Whiteside for his teamwork, enthusiasm and genuinely positive attitude. We are blessed to have him both in the ED and leading one of our medical committees.
