THE MEASURE OF WHO WE ARE
Residents across Southcentral Kentucky trust us with their healthcare needs whether that is keeping them healthy, healing the sick and injured, or saving lives. We do this with what we have - caring and dedicated employees and physicians, state-of-the-art technology, the most comprehensive healthcare services in the region, and a progressive dedication that keeps us striving for the highest quality. Vince Lombardi's words, "The measure of who we are is what we do with what we have," expresses our responsibility to use our resources wisely and to hold ourselves accountable for improving our community.
CHC's flagship hospital, The Medical Center, has cared for people and improved the quality of life in the communities we serve since 1926. Today, The Medical Center is the regional leader in healthcare with vital services such as: comprehensive Cardiac Care including the area's only open heart surgery program; Neuroscience Services and Primary Stroke Center; Obstetrics and Neonatology; Cancer Treatment Center; Surgical Weight Loss Program; da Vinci Robotic surgery and Orthopaedic Surgery.
The Medical Centers at Franklin and Scottsville serve their respective communities with quality healthcare services including emergency services, diagnostic imaging, rehabilitation services, surgery and physician specialty clinics. Commonwealth Regional Specialty Hospital meets the needs of patients with medically complex conditions and multiple chronic conditions that require long-term stays in an acute care environment.
CHC's impact on the community extends beyond its hospitals to a diverse group of subsidiaries. Bluegrass Outpatient Center restores function through rehabilitation services to those affected by disease or injury. Urgentcare and Quick Care Clinic provide quick and convenient nonemergency care. Commonwealth Health Free Clinic and The Dental Clinic help ease the financial burden of patients in need of basic medical and dental care. Barren River Adult Day Care Center helps adults who are physically or mentally impaired remain active through supervision, nursing care, social opportunities and assistance with daily living activities. And CHC's physician practices provide specialized care through ENT of Bowling Green, Franklin Surgical Services, Psychiatric Associates of Bowling Green, The Heart Institute, and Women's Health Specialists.
Excellence. Quality. Dedication. This is the measure of who we are, what we do, and what we have. It is our great privilege to touch the lives of residents in our region now, and in the future, through our extensive family of healthcare facilities.
