For his dedication to providing outstanding primary care to Southern Illinois, along with his decades of service to the Harrisburg community and students of Southern Illinois University School of Medicine, the Illinois Academy of Family Physicians has recognized Dr. Matthew C. Winkleman with the 2019 Distinguished Service Award. IAFP last bestowed this award in 2015 to Thomas Miller, MD, of Quincy.
Access to high-quality primary care in Southern Illinois is the hallmark of Primary Care Group in Harrisburg. Among their many recruits, family physicians and SIU graduates Matthew and Laura Winkleman joined the practice in 2005. Matthew became president and managing partner in 2012 and later took a leadership role in the evolution of Primary Care Group to SIH Medical Primary Care Group Harrisburg where he serves as medical director.
Winkleman has regularly hosted medical students from the SIU School of Medicine. Several of those students have chosen rural family medicine as their career choice.
