Excellence is more than what we do, it’s who we are

The Ephraim McDowell Health system offers three hospitals. Ephraim McDowell Regional Medical Center, our flagship hospital, is located in Danville. It has been serving the community from its current location since 1918. Ephraim McDowell Fort Logan Hospital, located in Stanford, joined our health system in 2001. And Ephraim McDowell James B. Haggin Hospital, located in Harrodsburg, joined the EMH family in 2017. All are equipped with advanced technology and highly-skilled and qualified providers. The Emergency Departments at the three hospitals are also verified as Trauma Centers and provide care 24 hours a day. The Emergency Departments are also certified as Pediatric Ready. In addition, Ephraim McDowell Regional Medical Center and Ephraim McDowell Fort Logan Hospital provide maternity care with private birthing suites. We invite you to learn more about the services provided.

Our Associates help improve lives in many ways 

You may notice some of our Associates wearing jeans or special scrub tops. They have made a commitment to the health of the communities we serve by donating to the Ephraim McDowell Health Care Foundation and in appreciation of their generosity, they have the privilege of wearing jeans or special scrub tops on Fridays. The donations will help the Foundation support life-changing projects throughout the Ephraim McDowell Health system, such as equipment for our hospitals, education for our Associates, camps for children with special needs and free medication and durable medical goods for our patients who can’t otherwise afford them. If you would like to contribute to projects like these, please contact the Foundation at (859) 239-2419.
