About Med Center Health

A Uniquely Innovative Approach to Healthcare

Simply put, Med Center Health is the area’s premier provider of healthcare services. With more hospitals, more clinics, more doctors, and more specialties across a 12-county area, nobody offers a wider range of care, right here.

Our flagship hospital, The Medical Center at Bowling Green, is a hub of forward thinking and innovation. And no matter where they practice, all of our physicians are driven to achieve the highest possible and most current accreditations, equipping them to employ the most innovative approaches to healthcare.

For instance, Med Center Health is the only facility in the region to use the precision of MAKO™ Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery, which creates a 3-D model of hip and knee replacement procedures. When it comes to cardiac care, The Medical Center’s Heart Institute’s quality scores far surpass national averages, including an average patient stay of just four days.

Med Center Health also maintains strong partnerships with the area’s finest academic institutions, such as Western Kentucky University and the University of Kentucky. And we are the only provider in the region that partners with UK HealthCare. This unique relationship increases opportunities for research and technology while gaining access to the latest in evidence-based medicine.

In addition, the health system recently added the University of Kentucky College of Medicine – Bowling Green Campus, the first 4-year regional medical school in Kentucky.

Quality Close to Home

Med Center Health’s six hospitals are located in Albany, Bowling Green, Horse Cave, Franklin, and Scottsville. More than 30 clinics serve the area. This wide footprint, combined with our commitment to proactively invest in the resources our communities need, helps people heal closer to home. No matter where you live in Southcentral Kentucky, the highest quality care is within your reach.

Our commitment to the communities we serve goes beyond improving the health of our patients. As a not-for-profit institution, the monetary benefits we generate far outweigh the taxes we would pay if we were in business to make money. The intangible benefits are even more significant – all part of our mission to improve the health and wellness of the patients and communities we serve.
