Deaconess was founded in 1892 by a group of Protestant ministers and laymen who felt called to care for the sick. More than 130 years later, Deaconess Health System continues to provide high-quality health care with a compassionate spirit, just as our founders envisioned.
Deaconess Health System is the premier provider of health care services to 35 counties in three states (IN, IL, and KY). The system consists of nine hospitals located in southern Indiana: Deaconess Midtown Hospital, Deaconess Gateway Hospital, The Women’s Hospital, The Heart Hospital, The Orthopedic and Neuroscience Hospital, Deaconess Cross Pointe, Deaconess Gibson Hospital, Encompass Health Deaconess Rehabilitation Hospital, and the Linda E. White Hospice House. Two hospitals in Kentucky also became part of Deaconess Health System in 2020: Deaconess Henderson Hospital and Deaconess Union County Hospital.
Deaconess Clinic, a fully integrated multispecialty group featuring primary care physicians as well as top specialty doctors, provides patients with consistent and convenient care.
Additional components include a freestanding Cancer Center, Urgent Care facilities, a network of preferred hospitals and doctors, more than 30 care sites, and multiple partnerships with other regional health care providers.
