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 Earns ACR Accreditation

The Medical Center at Caverna has been awarded a three-year term of accreditation in mammography as the result of a recent review by the American College of Radiology (ACR). Mammography is a specific type of imaging test that uses a low-dose X-ray system to examine breasts. A mammography exam, called a mammogram, is used to aid in the early detection and diagnosis of breast diseases in women.

The staff at The Medical Center at Caverna is proud to receive this accreditation once again. “ACR accreditation is basically the gold star for Radiology,” said Brittany Waddle, Radiology Manager of The Medical Center at Caverna. “This means we have been rigorously reviewed on our image quality to ensure we are providing top-of-the-line breast imaging to our patients. We were very excited when we received our accreditation. To accomplish this has been rewarding, as a whole.”See More

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.
