Surgical Center of Elizabethtown did their first procedure in November 1983. Since that time we have treated more than 60,000 patients and completed approximately 100,000 surgeries. December 2004 the facility was relocated from it’s original location on Westport Road to it’s current location at 108 Financial Drive directly off of Ring Road. The relocation gave SCE the opportunity to further enhance the services that could be offered to the community in an even more convenient setting. In November 2012 Hardin Memorial Hospital purchased the Center and the Surgical Center of Elizabethtown is an extension of Hardin Memorial Hospital Services.
