Evansville: A Clinical and Data Research Base

Evansville serves as the administrative, clinical care, clinical research and data analysis base for the Mary O’Daniel Stone and Bill Stone Center for Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at Indiana University School of Medicine–Evansville.

The infusion of new clinicians and their support staff expand a critically needed health care workforce in Evansville and southwestern Indiana. Medical students and psychiatry residents based in Evansville will have the opportunity to engage in research and learning opportunities at the Stone Center. 

New clinical trials are being conducted in Evansville. Advanced brain imaging technology is available for research and patient care needs through local hospitals. The one-of-a-kind data lake and analytics platform will be housed in Evansville, serving as a magnet for researchers, both from within IU School of Medicine and elsewhere.

The bulk of this activity will operate from IU School of Medicine–Evansville space within the new Deaconess Downtown Clinic. This 8,500-square-foot space, completed in 2020, was built with this purpose in mind.

The Mary O’Daniel Stone and Bill Stone Center for Child and Adolescent Psychiatry will make Evansville a hub for new medical tech industry, creating jobs, drawing investments, and planting the seeds for an ecosystem of data innovation.

“As natives, we are committed to Evansville’s growth. Key to quality growth is a healthy populace.  Mental health is one of the least understood maladies, is often debilitating to individuals, and very difficult for families and communities. This center will allow researchers to make Evansville a center of groundbreaking scientific discovery, while simultaneously training physicians to address the communities’ very real needs.”
