“Med Center Health has been in communication with Appalachian Regional Healthcare (ARH) in Eastern Kentucky to identify crucial needs for the communities they serve,” said Connie Smith, President and CEO for Med Center Health. “Following the December 2021 tornadoes, communities across Kentucky rallied together to send supplies and lend their support to Bowling Green-Warren County and communities in Western Kentucky. Now we have an opportunity to come together and help our friends in Eastern Kentucky who have been ravaged by these recent floods and are facing indescribable loss.”
