Physician Opportunities

Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital, a 295-bed facility, provides medical services to an 11-county service area in south central Kentucky. The hospital is one of only three hospitals in the United States that serves both as a rural regional referral center and a disproportionate-share facility. Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital has completed nine major expansion projects since its opening in 1976. The most recent project included building a 116,000 square-foot, five-story medical tower and a three-story parking garage. Currently, the hospital is completing a new neuro/orthopedic unit.

The hospital’s 24-hour emergency department is among the busiest in the state, treating some 36,000 patients each year, and the hospital also welcomes some 1,600 new babies each year.  The hospital has three cath labs, comprehensive clinical pathology and lab, cardiopulmonary services, surgical services , and a radiology department with nuclear medicine, ultrasound, 16- and 64-slice CT, X-ray with fluoroscopy, and MRI. Other units include The Cardiothoracic and Vascular Institute; an inpatient rehabilitation unit; a skilled care unit; and The Neurosciences Institute. The hospital also has a behavioral health unit to provide care for both adult and geriatric patients.
