Facts & Stats about Baptist Health Corbin
Baptist Health Corbin opened in Corbin, Kentucky in 1986 as a replacement facility for the former Southeastern Kentucky Baptist Hospital. The current 240 bed facility is the provider of choice for several area counties. The individual excellence of the hospital was previously demonstrated when Baptist Health Corbin was the first hospital to receive the Kentucky "Governor's Gold Quality Award".
Since 2002, Baptist Health Corbin has operated a dedicated Outpatient Diagnostic Center that was the first in the region. The center houses some of the latest innovations in diagnostic equipment including a semi-open state-of-the-art 1.5 tesla magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) unit capable of providing higher quality diagnostic images than ususally found in an open architecture unit. The center also contains high definition ultrasound, computer axial tomography (CT) adn digital, routine x-rays. Baptist Health Corbin was the first hospital in Kentucky to purchase a 40-slice Brilliance CT that has the abilityh to reconstruct up to 40 images per second. This will bring significant improvement in the clinical area of cardiac imaging, pulmonary imaging, brain perfusion for stroke assessment and CT angiography.
This year, Baptist Health Corbin entered into a partnership with Oak Tree Mangement, Inc. for the development of a Long Term Acute Care Hospital (LTACH) to be operated within the existing hosptial. This 25 bed unit will provide care for those patients requiring an extended acute care stay.
Baptist Health Corbin formed a Customer Satisfaction Council with representation from the Tri-county area of Laurel, Knox and Whitley counties.
