Our History
Welborn Clinic's tradition of providing health care to the Tri-State goes back to the turn of the century. In 1894, a group of physicians founded the Evansville Sanitarium which was later named Walker Hospital. In that hospital, the physicians rented office space to see patients and the clinic concept came to life.

That clinic in its hospital location provided medical care to residents of Southern Indiana, Southern Illinois and Western Kentucky through the mid 1940s. In 1947, the physicians decided to reorganize and began drawing up plans to build a facility of their own in downtown Evansville. That one story building, completed in December of 1951, was the beginning of the Welborn Clinic as it is known today.

Welborn Clinic, in downtown Evansville, is a three-level medical facility with more than 100 doctors and health care providers. The Clinic also operates nine satellite clinics in the Tri-State: Welborn Clinic Newburgh, Welborn Clinic East, Welborn Clinic Highland, Westside Family Practice Center, Reo Family Practice Center, Welborn Clinic Princeton, Welborn Clinic Gateway (Family Practice and Pediatrics) and Welborn Clinic OB/GYN Department at St. Mary's Hospital for Women and Children.
