Nancy Stirling, DO
Board-certified in family medicine for adults and adolescents, Nancy Stirling, D.O. sees patients at the Bedford office of Southern Indiana Community Health Care (SICHC). Before joining SICHC, Dr. Stirling served as hospitalist and a primary care physician at the Sullivan County Community Hospital. During her tenure there she also served as medical director for a local nursing home.
With nearly four decades of experience in medicine, Dr. Stirling joined SICHC to “partner with the community to provide medical care for the region.” Describing herself as an “old fashioned doctor” who focuses on “taking time to listen to patients,” she works closely with the SICHC team to offer the best options for patient treatments.
Dr. Stirling conducts her practice in alignment with the spiritual principles embraced by SICHC, noting that one of her favorite Bible verses can be found in Galatians 5:22-23: “the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.” Her commitment to patients and the community includes her personal prayer and commitment that “the Spirit of God will help me to spread these spiritual fruits to all I meet.”
After receiving a bachelor’s degree from Butler University in Indianapolis, Dr. Stirling graduated from Midwestern University Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine in 1984. She completed her residency at Westview Hospital in Indianapolis and the Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami, Fla. She counts it a privilege to have been able to practice medicine together with her parents, both medical professionals, for more than 20 years in a rural medical practice.
