Our goal is to be the healthcare leader in our area, providing excellent care with kindness and compassion. Our Mission: “Making Communities Healthier” reinforces our dedication to the health and wellbeing of the people we serve.
As the largest private employer in the region, LCRH takes its position in the community seriously and strives to be a good corporate citizen by partnering with local and national charitable organizations to raise funds to enhance lives and work toward finding cures for various diseases and health conditions. We collaborate with schools, community groups, church groups, and individuals to provide important health screenings and information to help folks lead healthier lives. We also sponsor a number of regional programs including: Pounds Off Pulaski weight-loss program, Dine with the Docs (monthly programs for community members to learn more about health conditions, diseases, and/or new services), Wear Red Day to raise awareness about heart disease, , Senior Health & Fitness Day, and the annual Breast Cancer Symposium, which involve hundreds of community members.
Other unique services we provide to our region include an active Senior Friends chapter with nearly 4,000 members, adult volunteer opportunities and a not-for-profit Gift Shop that provides scholarships annually for allied health career students at Somerset Community College. Our Health Ministries program coordinates our volunteer chaplain program and Health Career Explorers (a BSA Learning for Life Post) which provides opportunities for students to learn about health careers, develop leadership skills and volunteer.

Our stroke program was awarded the Advanced Certification for Primary Stroke Center as well as Spine Surgery Certification from The Joint Commission, and we have been recognized by the American College of Cardiology as an Accredited Chest Pain Center with PCI.
