Physi­cian Owned & Operated 

At The South Bend Clin­ic, our Board of Direc­tors is com­prised of prac­tic­ing physi­cians who under­stand how to main­tain the most effi­cient pro­fes­sion­al lives in health­care. Unlike physi­cians employed by hos­pi­tal sys­tems, our physi­cians have auton­o­my over their sched­ules and how they prac­tice medicine.

Who We Are

The South Bend Clin­ic was found­ed in 1916 by sur­geon Wal­ter Bak­er after he vis­it­ed the Mayo Clin­ic, now one of the most renowned med­ical insti­tu­tions in the world. Dr. Bak­er returned to South Bend with the inspi­ra­tion to cre­ate a sim­i­lar prac­tice and formed the South Bend Clin­ic with the help of sev­er­al physi­cians. Found­ed on the idea that health­care should be patient-cen­tered and physi­cian-led, our clin­ic strives to pro­vide advanced yet per­son­al­ized healthcare. 

South Bend Clin­ic has grown into an out­stand­ing mul­ti-spe­cial­ty health­care orga­ni­za­tion with over 170 pri­ma­ry care and spe­cial­ty physi­cians and over 1,000 team mem­bers in more than ten loca­tions and remains true to patient-cen­tered values.

We invite you to research our open­ings if your ded­i­ca­tion to pro­vid­ing out­stand­ing care is sim­i­lar to ours. 

We recent­ly intro­duced the Epic elec­tron­ic med­ical record and patient por­tal, which allows our physi­cians to com­mu­ni­cate infor­ma­tion with one anoth­er more effi­cient­ly and accu­rate­ly for our patients thanks to the use of Epic. Addi­tion­al­ly, because of our rep­u­ta­tion, we are able to recruit the best sup­port staff for our physi­cian team.
