Clark Regional Medical Center is part of LifePoint Hospitals, a leading hospital company based in Brentwood, TN focused on providing quality healthcare services close to home. LifePoint acquired CRMC on April 30, 2010, and announced plans for the new facility which has been designed to meet the community’s comprehensive healthcare needs.
“Our amazing new hospital facility will provide advanced services, making certain that the changing healthcare needs of our community are met today and into the future,” said Kathy Love, CEO of Clark Regional Medical Center. “Our expanded location will be invaluable to Clark County and surrounding communities and will ensure that our physicians and staff have excellent facilities and the latest technology tools to provide the highest level of care possible for all of our patients.”
The 131,000 square-foot hospital, which will replace CRMC’s current facility, will feature 79 beds and contain space for many important medical and support services including:
Enhanced healthcare information technology capabilities, including electronic medical record systems with bedside computer charting at all patient care locations
Emergency Department with 22 private exam and treatment rooms
Construction is to begin fall of 2010, with completion of the new facility expected spring 2012.
