About Deaconess

Deaconess was founded in 1892 by a group of Protestant ministers and laymen who felt called to care for the sick. More than 120 years later, Deaconess Health System has become the premier provider of health care services to three states and 26 counties. We continue our mission of providing quality health care services with a compassionate and caring spirit to the community.
The system is made up of six hospitals in Southern Indiana: Deaconess Hospital, Deaconess Gateway Hospital, The Women’s Hospital, The Heart Hospital, Deaconess Cross Pointe, and HealthSouth Deaconess Rehabilitation Hospital. Additionally, the health system includes Deaconess Clinic, a fully integrated multispecialty group featuring primary care physicians as well as top specialty doctors. Also included in the health system is a freestanding Cancer Center, Urgent Care facilities, a network of preferred hospitals and doctors, more than 20 care sites, and multiple partnerships with other community health care providers.
