Rivers inspire. Connect. Nurture. And it was on a graceful river bend that South Bend was born. And nourished by the waters, a vibrant city quickly grew — as did five prestigious medical institutions creating one of the Midwest's leading health care destinations ... the Medical Mile.
The one-mile circle known as the Medical Mile represents the area's largest regional health-care concentration, a strong alliance dedicated to the health and well-being of the community. Together, the five health care providers have more than 300 health professionals, more than 5,000 employees and enjoy the conveniences of downtown South Bend. This alliance of the five largest South Bend-based medical providers offers the latest in technologies, treatments, research and education, advancing South Bend as a progressive regional health-care leader.
