Drs. Amin calling it quits

RUSHVILLE — After 34 years of practice, Dr. Jitendra Amin and Dr. Nila Amin will retire at the end of this year. Drs. Amin located in Rushville and set up practice at the Rushville Medical Clinic on Spencer Street.

In their years of practice, they have seen hundreds of patients and provided

personal patient care in this community. Both sons, Chirag and Chintan,

graduated from Rushville Consolidated High School and proceeded to receive

medical degrees thus continuing the legacy of the Amin's. Dr. Jitendra Amin served on Rush Memorial Hospital's Board of Trustees and as Chief of Staff. He has had a strong bond with Rush Memorial Hospital and is an advocate of the many advances in services and technology that the hospital offers today.

According to Dr. Jitendra Amin, "I want my patients and this community to

know that the doctors at Rush Memorial will provide quality care for you. This hospital has the technology and individual patient care that you do not see in many larger hospitals in Indianapolis. Without any reservation I know that these doctors and this facility will take care of you."

Dr. Amin continued with an open statement to the Rush County community, "We, my wife and I, would like to take this time to thank all the people of Rush County for the privilege of being able to serve you over the past 30 years. I would also like to take this time to tell you that we are lucky to have a county owned hospital and the quality of medical and nursing staff to handle our needs in a time of emergency and also for all other medical needs. I have known Brad Smith for many years and since he became CEO of the hospital there has been a lot of improvement and new services available to the people of Rush County. I am asking you to support our hospital and if you have any concerns, please make available the constructive concerns, so that Brad Smith can address those concerns and make changes according to their needs. I extend many thanks to Donna Wall and the Rush Memorial Hospital medical and nursing staff for taking care of my patients."

Dr. Amin continued with instructions for his patients.

"Rush Memorial Hospital Healthcare Associates will be taking over this practice. You are able to choose the physician you want. If Rush Memorial Hospital Healthcare Associates are the physicians you wish to see, you can call and make an appointment and your records will be available to them for continuity of care. Otherwise, you may request your records to be transferred to the physicians of your choice. God bless you all."

RMH Healthcare Associates can be reached at 765-932-7591. The offices are

found on the first floor of the Medical Office Building, 110 East 13th Street.

The RMH Foundation is pleased and honored to announce that the Amins have

graciously donated their home and office building to the Foundation.

"This is a very generous gift to the RMH Foundation," according to Rush Memorial Hospital President and CEO Brad Smith. "Drs. Amin have been advocates and friends of our hospital and community for many years. We are grateful for the generosity and continued support of what this hospital can provide and in our vision for the future. We thank them for their years of service and the legacy that they leave for our hospital."

Faith Mock, RMH Foundation executive director, continued the thanks, "The Amins have touched the lives of many in this community. They will be deeply missed. I wish them the best in their retirement and thank them for their most generous gift to the Foundation. This gift will positively impact our patients and community for many years to come."

Dr. Jitendra Amin's practice will officially close at the end of 2012. They hope to travel and spend time enjoying family.

If you are considering a gift to the RMH Foundation contact the Rush Memorial

Hospital Foundation office at 765-932-7568. Online donations may also be

All gifts are acknowledged with a personal thank you from the Foundation. Your gifts create a legacy of support for the continued care and quality of services at Rush Memorial Hospital.
