Women's Health Center

Welcome to Harrison Memorial Hospital's Elizabeth Bailey Women’s Health Center. Named after HMH’s former administrator Elizabeth Bailey, the center includes labor and delivery/patient suites that rival those of any larger medical center. Our enhancement also includes state-of-the-art technology and improved privacy for you and your family.

Along with the new facility, we continue to offer the expertise of our highly qualified board – certified OB/GYNs, pediatricians and family care physicians. In addition to highly trained physicians, we have an anesthesia staff with 60 years of obstetrical experience, to facilitate pain control throughout the labor and delivery process. HMH also has a nursing staff with over 200 years of experience in the field.   You can be confident in our abilities to support and care for you and your baby during this special time. Should the need arise, every caregiver is certified in the neonatal resuscitation program.   And because each delivery is different and problems can sometimes occur, our enhanced surgical services ensure that you’re in the best possible hands — right here at home. Our relationships with University of Kentucky Chandler Medical Center and Central Baptist Hospital play an important role should your pregnancy become high-risk.

You don’t need to make your baby’s arrival any more stressful by traveling. HMH is conveniently located for residents in our service area. The physicians and staff of Harrison Memorial Hospital are committed to providing you an exceptional experience throughout your pregnancy and birth of your baby.   A lactation consultant is available upon request.  And the following are just a few of the “little extras” we like to give our new moms. We hope you enjoy your stay at the Women’s Health Center at Harrison Memorial Hospital.
