2016: A Year in Review

HMH 2016 ReviewWhat a year it has been.  As we take a look back at 2016 and celebrate, it’s the patients and their families who remain at the heart of it all.

 

  • In early 2016, HMH opened 26 more private rooms for surgical patients to receive post-operative care. With the opening of the new surgical patient rooms, 85 percent of our 300 beds are private.

 

  • HMH’s Therapy and Sports Medicine Center celebrated its 10th anniversary providing athletic training and support to six area schools, Elizabethtown Community and Technical College and the Elizabethtown Sports Park.

 

  • The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) ranked HMH in the top 25 percent of hospitals The ranking put HMH in the top quartile of best performing hospitals in the country. Of the 82 hospitals rated in Kentucky, only 16 earned four stars and none received five stars.

 

  • HMH and the HMH Foundation (HMHF) celebrated the first birthday of Central Kentucky’s only Level II NICU at HMH. Babies who spent time in the NICU and their families took part in the celebration.  HMHF’s first project was the NICU, raising more than $500,000 in just one year.

 

  • HMH welcomed 11 new providers in nine specialties, including two new ones to the HMH Medical Group – Ear, Nose and Throat and Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.

 

  • HMH’s Multidisciplinary Breast Program offers comprehensive services from annual screening to plastic and reconstructive surgery for breast cancer patients.

 

  • HMH’s Total Joint Program was named one of the best in the country for hip and knee replacement in a Becker’s Hospital Review. HMH ranked in the top 12 hospitals across the country and was the only program in Kentucky to receive the distinction.

 

  • Standard and Poor’s (S&P) raised its rating from BBB to A- on 2013 revenue bonds Hardin County issued on behalf of HMH. HMH officials called the rare, two-level rating jump an affirmation of years of hard work to strengthen and grow the healthcare system.
