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 51 counties in three states (IN, IL, and KY). The system consists of 20 wholly owned, joint ventured, sponsored or affiliated hospitals located in southern Indiana, southeastern Illinois and western Kentucky.
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 150 care locations and multiple partnerships with other regional health care providers.
