Andy Koon, MD
Dr. Andy Koon practices as a Hospitalist at St. Vincent Carmel Hospital in Carmel, Indiana. Andy went on his first short-term mission trip three years ago to Santa Cruz, Bolivia. He credits a mentor from the University of South Florida Morsani College of Medicine, where he trained in Internal Medicine, for encouraging his involvement with missions and CMDA ministry.
On the mission field, he has seen a growing desire among medical students and residents to provide medical care to the underserved internationally. Trips that occur during the months of Spring Break provide an opportunity for students and residents to get involved with missions and have become the highlight of his year. He is excited about partnering again with Oasis Church in the Dominican Republic this year as they reach out to share Christ’s love through medical care.
Andy and his wife Jenny live in Carmel, Indiana, and have two young children, Anna and Nathan. They enjoy being involved in local CMDA ministry and hope to encourage the development of the next generation of healthcare professionals in missions work.
