Message from our CEO

Welcome to Harrison Memorial Hospital’s website.

We’ve been busy at Harrison Memorial Hospital over the past year. Physical enhancements to our hospital structure and performance accolades abound, as we continue our mission of remaining one of the strongest independent hospitals in Kentucky.

2016 saw the on-time completion of our major hospital expansion. Patients can now take advantage of a new medical/surgical floor, complete with private patient rooms. They can also utilize our new Specialty Clinic, a new area designated solely for diagnostic imaging and a new Urgent Treatment Center located adjacent to our hospital’s Emergency Department. With the opening of our KidTown Preschool on the hospital’s campus, we continue to find innovative ways to meet the needs of the residents of Harrison and surrounding counties.

And it looks as though our hard work did not go unnoticed. I’m proud of the many recognitions and awards bestowed upon our hardworking healthcare family. In 2016, we earned the Press Ganey Guardian of Excellence award for outstanding performance in clinical quality. Our Emergency Department was upgraded to a Level IV Trauma Center. And the birthing experts at our Elizabeth Bailey Women’s Center were recognized by the Kentucky Hospital Association, in partnership with the March of Dimes, for reducing the number of early elective and cesarean section deliveries for newborns -- creating a healthier start for the newest members of our community.

Harrison Memorial Hospital employees continue to rise above, making our hospital a shining example to other healthcare institutions. Because of this, we were recognized as one of Kentucky’s Best Places to Work for the sixth consecutive year by the KY Chamber of Commerce. And it’s no secret that happy employees are more likely to provide outstanding care to our patients, which is undoubtedly our highest priority.

building for the future,

Sheila Currans
Chief Executive Officer
