For physicians aspiring to practice in a progressive, growing medical community that demands quality and breeds excellence, Pikeville Medical Center is the place for you!
PMC’s commitment to providing world-class care with a personal approach has made the hospital the region’s medical leader as well as a standout among health care organizations nationwide. In fact, PMC was named National Hospital of the Year by the American Alliance of Healthcare Providers three years in a row, 2009-2011. The hospital competed with such facilities as Mayo Clinic, Johns Hopkins Hospital and Cleveland Clinic for this distinction. PMC also received the high honor of being selected as one of the Best Places to Work by Modern Healthcare.
Part of PMC’s success can be attributed to the progressive action taken by hospital leadership to continually add services, purchase cutting-edge technology, expand facilities and recruit the most qualified professionals. PMC’s greatest asset is its more than 275 credentialed physicians and 2,200 employees.
How does PMC recruit these top-notch professionals? The addition of new services, such as neurosurgery and bariatric surgery; the expansion of existing services, like the Pikeville Heart Institute’s electrophysiology program; and plans for future services have created opportunities for physicians in numerous specialties. Once at PMC, hospital leaders provide physicians with the necessary resources and technology to practice medicine to the very highest level of their specialty.

At the heart of PMC’s daily operations is its mission to “provide quality, regional health care in a Christian environment.” As a direct result, the hospital’s environment is one in which employees’ attitudes are friendly and physicians are valued by patients and coworkers alike.
Families of physicians considering PMC will also benefit from the unique and safe atmosphere that only an all-American small town can offer. Located in a city that is just as forward-thinking as PMC itself, Pikeville was twice named one of the country’s 100 Best Small Towns in America (Prentice Hall). It is the third largest banking industry in Kentucky and is also home to Pikeville Independent Schools, which is currently ranked in the top 10 school districts in the state. Several acclaimed private schools are also located nearby, as well a private college, a medical school and a community college.
Looking for culture and entertainment? The 7,000-seat East Kentucky Exposition Center is situated in downtown Pikeville and hosts a wide variety of concerts, children’s shows and sports events. Jenny Wiley Theatre offers theatrical productions year round at both the Jenny Wiley Amphitheatre, located within the Jenny Wiley State Resort Park, and surrounding venues. Presentations range from classic Broadway musicals to comedies and historical dramas. Also adding to the cultural fabric of Eastern Kentucky is the Mountain Arts Center, which provides musical entertainment and arts education.
Outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy mountain hiking trails located within the city limits of Pikeville as well as those found at the famous Breaks Interstate Park and surrounding areas. The City Park is the perfect picnic spot for families and also contains a playground for children.
If health and fitness are a priority, the Pikeville YMCA has something to offer those of all ages. The YMCA offers youth sports programs including basketball, baseball, soccer, martial arts and gymnastics, just to name a few.
Pikeville is also home to an annual festival – Kentucky’s second largest – that takes place each April and draws crowds from all over the United States and Canada. Each spring, the streets of downtown are lined with hundreds of food and crafts booths while music fills the air.
With activities to interest those of all ages and backgrounds, Pikeville offers a quality of life that is second to none. PMC strives to do its part in enriching the lives and improving the health of those it serves.
