The UK Gill Heart Institute has expanded its reach to offer the region's most comprehensive cardiology and cardiothoracic surgery services close to home in Hazard and surrounding towns. Gill cardiologists offer risk prevention, diagnostic assessment and a full menu of therapeutic services. Our locally based cardiothoracic surgeon is able to perform a full range of surgeries that formally would have required travel to Lexington or a larger center.
The Gill Heart Institute is committed to meeting the heart care needs of Eastern Kentucky, whether it's providing a much-needed specialist locally or accepting the transfer of a critically ill patient to the institute's service at UK Chandler Hospital in Lexington when necessary.
To make sure patients in Eastern Kentucky have access to the most advanced heart care available, Appalachian Heart Center has joined the UK Gill Heart Institute. This means our patients can continue to see the same local doctors and receive the latest medical treatments available without having to leave their community.
