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. 

Because we are dedicated to providing high quality healthcare, Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital voluntarily undergoes multiple accreditation surveys to help us maximize our potential.  We have received the Gold Seal of Approval® from The Joint Commission. Additionally, our cancer program is certified by the Commission on Cancer. 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.

In 2014, Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital  welcomed the first class of  Internal Medicine Residents to the hospital for their three-year residency training. We then expanded our program to include a Family Medicine Residency. Now fully developed, our Residency Programs accommodates a total of 39 Residents annually who work alongside and learn from our Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital Medical Staff.
