Clark Regional Medical Center Celebrates 95th Anniversary With Grand Opening Of New Facility

Clark Regional Medical Center (CRMC) today celebrated the grand opening of its new $60 million, 79-bed facility in Winchester, Ky. The grand opening, which marks the first newly constructed community hospital to open in Kentucky in 2012, coincides with the hospital’s 95 th anniversary. The Honorable Steve Beshear, Governor of Kentucky, joined local officials and hospital leadership to mark the event with a ribbon cutting ceremony at the new facility.

CRMC is one of nine community hospitals in Kentucky that are part of LifePoint Hospitals, a leading hospital company focused on providing quality healthcare services close to home. CRMC is also part of the network of LifePoint Central Kentucky hospitals, which also includes Bluegrass Community Hospital in Versailles, Bourbon Community Hospital in Paris and Georgetown Community Hospital in Georgetown. The opening of the new, state-of-the-art replacement facility fulfills a commitment LifePoint made to the community when it acquired CRMC in May 2010.

“This truly is a momentous occasion for the state of Kentucky. The new Clark Regional Medical Center is cutting edge and shines a bright light on this community’s commitment to its people for nearly a century,” said Governor Beshear. “Developing strong healthcare infrastructure throughout the state remains a priority of mine, and I’m honored to be here today to celebrate this milestone and highlight Clark County as a model community for healthcare advancement.”

Designed by Louisville-based Stengel Hill Architecture, the new 131,000 square-foot CRMC hospital features a forward-thinking, one-level design configured around a “central spine,” from which each department of the medical center stems. This enhances patient flow and eliminates the vertical congestion found in many multi-floor facilities by creating an easily navigable floor plan that funnels through a single, main entrance.

“Opening a brand new facility as we celebrate 95 years of serving Winchester and the surrounding areas is quite profound,” said Kathy Love, CEO of Clark Regional Medical Center. “Throughout the construction process, we worked very closely with the architects at Stengel to examine how every aspect of the building would positively impact our patients and enhance our healthcare capabilities. Our exceptional new hospital facility will advance our services and technology, arming our talented staff with the tools they need to respond to the evolving healthcare needs of our community.”
