We’re all in this together. It’s a phrase we hear a lot – especially now when the world has undergone a period of great worry and uncertainty.
In these times and others like it throughout history, we’ve looked to the people and places that can offer hope, guidance and the comfort of camaraderie. These are the qualities that form the backbone of a community.
Since 1941, when we first opened the doors to a practice consisting of five physicians, Watson Clinic has aspired to provide world-class care in a welcoming, personable setting. This goal was firmly rooted in our belief and commitment to our community.
As we celebrate our 80th anniversary, these principles continue to define all that we do. As our bond with the community has deepened, so has our commitment to delivering the highest quality of care in our region. Our growth is the result of that bond; we hear the needs of our patients and respond in kind. That’s why we currently employ over 220 of the most skilled specialists from around the globe, offer a host of specialties and services tailored to meet the needs of patients both young and old, and provide the unparalleled convenience of 18 locations across Polk, Pasco and Hillsborough counties.
The Lakeland Flying Tigers and Detroit Tigers Florida Operations understand the sanctity of community as well. This stellar organization has conducted their Spring Training activities in Lakeland for the past 85 years – that’s the longest-running relationship with a host city in the history of professional baseball.
It was only a matter of time before two of the most enduring institutions in Lakeland and its surrounding communities joined forces.
Watson Clinic has served the healthcare needs of Tigers players and their extended team members for many decades - from pre-season physicals to any type of care required during the regular season and beyond. Whether they call upon our specialists in primary care, orthopaedic surgery, sports medicine, physical therapy, cardiology or from any of our more than 40 medical and surgical specialties, the Tigers have benefited from Watson Clinic’s breadth of expertise, cutting-edge technologies and multitude of locations.
These offerings keep Tigers players healthy and agile, but the level of skillfulness and access they enjoy is not limited to major league sports figures; it’s the same caliber of care we provide to patients from all walks of life every single day.
Both Watson Clinic and the Tigers are devoted to bringing a welcoming sense of unity, comfort and belonging to our community - whether you’re sitting in the stadium bleachers or in one of our physicians’ offices. We make a great team. But all of us are proud to serve the one team that matters most – you and your family.
And like any great team, we’re all in this together.
Watson Clinic is proud to be the official medical provider for the Lakeland Flying Tigers and Detroit Tigers Florida Operations.
