At The Medical Center at Caverna, we’re committed to ensuring that Hart and surrounding counties in Kentucky have access to quality healthcare. As part of the healthcare system that includes The Medical Center at Bowling Green, we take pride in being much more than an acute care hospital. In addition to our fully staffed emergency room and 25-inpatient hospital beds, we offer a wide range of quality healthcare services through specialized clinics. Right here, close to home.

Diagnostic Imaging was recently expanded with the purchase of a 64-slice GE Revolution EVO CT Scanner. This provides a lower dose of radiation and allows for low-dose lung cancer screenings. Faster scan times improves the imaging and provides greater patient comfort.

The Medical Center at Caverna was been serving Hart County and the surrounding area since Caverna Memorial Hospital opened its doors and treated its first patient in June 1967. It has always been an important part of the community; many of Hart County’s residents were born in this hospital.

Expansions were completed in 1999, 2009 and 2014, as new land and buildings were added. In 2016, the hospital became part of the Commonwealth Health Corporation and was renamed The Medical Center at Caverna.
