(Henderson, Ky.) July 12, 2017 – As of August 1, 2017, Island Medical Management (IMM) will provide physician management and staffing services to the emergency department of Methodist Hospital, a community-focused health center located in Henderson, Kentucky.
Methodist Hospital was first founded in 1946 in Western Kentucky. Today, the facility consists of two hospitals, including a 192-bed hospital in Henderson, and a 25-bed critical access hospital in Morganfield. It is the hospital’s mission to partner with its medical team to, “…place an emphasis on safety, compassionate care, high-quality health services, and affordable treatment options in order to address the mental, spiritual, and physical well-being of patients.”
On average, the emergency room at Methodist Hospital sees 30,000 patients a year. The ED is staffed 24/7 by physicians and nurses ready to receive and immediately treat patients in critical condition. In its efforts to ensure local, comprehensive care to their patient community, Methodist Hospital continually adds to its staff and outfits the facility with new and improved medical equipment.
