Deaconess Clinic Downtown is officially open

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - Deaconess officials held a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the new Downtown Evansville Clinic Tuesday.

The new Deaconess Clinic includes 100,000 square feet of clinic and office space and includes primary and specialty care.

The facility also includes lab and radiology services and a new Deaconess Clinic Express is also scheduled to be there later this year on the first floor of the building. The clinical research space in the facility will also be partially funded by $9 million from the Regional Cities Initiative.

”This will serve as not only a medical hub for medical care for the local population here downtown but also a regional population as well,” said Shawn McCoy, CEO of Deaconess Health said. “We still have patients who drive from other states who come see their doctors here and this is that hub.”

Officials say they’ll start seeing patients next week but not all departments will be operating initially as it’ll be more of a slow opening.
