Western State Hospital

Western State Hospital (WSH) is a state psychiatric facility operated by the Kentucky Cabinet of Human Resources. Western State Hospital serves the 42 counties of Western Kentucky.

WSH employs approximately 750 health care professionals, which includes physicians (psychiatrists, internists, family practitioners), psychologists, nurses, social workers, laboratory & x-ray technicians, occupational therapists, and recreational therapists. We treat approximately 2,400 patients per year. Although we are licensed for 350 beds, we maintain a census of approximately 110 at any given time.

The doors of Western State Hospital opened in 1854 and the hospital has been in continuous operation as a psychiatric facility since that time. We are accredited by the Joint Commission of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO).
