Our Cardiologists Are Committed to Heart Health
At Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital, our experienced cardiologists and cardiac team are committed to your heart health. We offer a broad spectrum of adult cardiac care, maintain high levels of training for all hospital personnel, offer consistent care for every patient in every department, and continually seek to improve our processes and procedures, ensuring the most up-to-date, evidence-based care.
Make heart health a priority.
Heart health is about more than just your heart. Blood pressure, cholesterol, family history and other factors all play important roles in keeping your heart strong. If you have questions about your heart health but aren’t quite sure where to begin, start with a heart health assessment and learn more about any risks you may have for heart-related conditions. Your journey to a stronger heart starts here.

We Are an Accredited Chest Pain Center
We earned our accreditation from ACC Accreditation Services, the accrediting arm of the American College of Cardiology, meaning we meet or exceed quality of care measures for patients who may be having a heart attack or other cardiac event.
The Highest Levels of Cardiac Care
The national benchmark for obtaining and interpreting an EKG is 10 minutes. At 5 minutes, Lake Cumberland consistently outperforms this benchmark, which facilitates early diagnosis of a heart attack for patients coming directly to our ED.
We understand that every minute counts when you're experiencing a heart attack. National standards* encourage a door-to-balloon time (the time between first medical contact and the opening of a blocked artery) of 90 minutes or less. At Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital, we've taken patients door-to-balloon in as little as 10 minutes.

Our emergency department is integrated with the local emergency medical system (EMS), allowing our team to initiate a STEMI Alert from the field/home, which means significantly faster treatment times for our patients.
Post Cardiac Care
We facilitate communication to make sure you’re aware of your patient’s hospitalization and plan of care.
Quality Heart Care, Close to Home
As a network affiliate with UK's Gill Heart and Vascular Institute, our goal is to enhance access to high-quality cardiovascular care by providing the right care in the right place at the right time; preferably as close to home as possible for our patients. Our partnership with Gill Heart provides cardiovascular-specific education and training programs for local physicians, nurses and staff to ensure the most up-to-date cardiovascular information is available to our patients as well as access to programs and services that may not be available in our local community.
