About Kentucky River Medical Center
Healing begins here.
Our patients choose Kentucky River Medical Center and the affiliated clinics because we provide high-quality personalized care in our 55-bed facility. In fact, our goal is to treat every person who turns to us for care like we would a family member. Why talk about this on an employment section of our site? Because we want you to know what kind of people we are.
We are members of the Kentucky Hospital Association and Federation of American Healthcare Systems and a Joint Commission accredited facility.
In recent years we have expanded our facility to offer our community even better access to the quality care they expect. Some of these newer services include:
- 6-bed Intensive Care Unit
- Cardiac Catheterization Lab
- In-house MRI
We believe in the power of people to create great care. We focus on bringing our patients current technology and surgical procedures, and more importantly, highly trained professionals. And we work hard every day to be a place of healing, caring and connection for patients and families in the community we call home.
We are committed to building a workforce that reflects the diversity of the community we serve. Fostering a diverse workforce benefits both employees and patients by offering an inclusive place to provide and receive care. Men and women from different backgrounds serve in a number of roles in our organization. While we may come from different experiences, we all share the same goal of providing high quality patient care.
Providing Culturally Competent Care
Our employees receive annual training designed to support and encourage an inclusive environment for healthcare delivery and customer service. Additional resources are available to assist with the delivery of healthcare, such as translation and technology services and responding to cultural issues for patients and families of different backgrounds.
Recruiting and Retaining Diverse Talent
As an Equal Opportunity Employer, we are committed to recruiting talented employees with valuable expertise from different races, religions, genders, sexual orientations and other protected classes. We participate in local career fairs and business expos, work with recruiting sources to actively seek diverse applicants, and partner with colleges and schools with significant minority enrollment to identify highly qualified applicants.
