About Deaconess Clinic

Welcome to Deaconess Clinic!

October 1, 2008, marked the official beginning of Deaconess Clinic – the integration of Deaconess Medical Group and Welborn Clinic. “We are proud of this expansion of our working relationship,” said Linda White, president and CEO of Deaconess Health System. “The strengths Welborn Clinic physicians and employees bring to the table – compassion, quality and dedication – fit very well with the Deaconess culture and will assist us in providing quality care to patients throughout the Tri-State.”

“Deaconess Health System and Welborn Clinic have shared a positive working relationship for a long time, and we are excited about the opportunity to work together,” said Dr. David Christeson, the current Welborn Clinic CEO and newly named Chief Physician Administrative Officer of Deaconess Clinic. “Combining the physicians of Welborn Clinic and Deaconess Medical Group into one entity will provide access to medical services, technology and locations. Physicians working together using one unified information system to provide exceptional patient care will now be possible.”

All of the current Deaconess Medical Group offices, and nearly every one of the Welborn Clinic offices will remain in their current locations. Patients will notice a few changes over the next several months, such as signage and location names. All locations will be renamed as Deaconess Clinic offices.

Most patients should be able to continue seeing the same physicians as usual. If you would like to begin seeing a Deaconess Clinic physician, call 812/450-4400 or search for a doctor online. The Deaconess Physician Finder service helps patients find a physician who meets their personal preferences and geographic location.
