Location and Directions


It's good to have a hospital like this in a small town, because the town is quite adistance from larger cities, but unless you're in urgent, desperate need of medical attention, I'd advise you to just go on to Lexington. My brother was in a bad accident, and after ex-rays were taken, a nurse told us his back was not broken. (I happen to know this woman and I know she cannot read ex-rays.) Once we got to UK, we found out that his back was broken in 3 places. And it speaks volumes for the staff who work at this hospital that they've come to this site and left GLOWING 5-star reviews for this place just to pump up their rating score. That's kind of pathetic. (3 months ago)

Hospital staff are some of the hardest working people. They take care of us and our loved one's during very difficult times. I am so thankful for KRMC and having good quality care close to home for myself and my family when it is needed. (7 months ago)

Rebecca Watkins was excellent, very thorough. Bre in the lab did an excellent job and was very professional! Wonderful experience and wonderful staff! (7 months ago)

If I could put no stars, I would. The most incompetent staff and doctors work here. I truly have no idea how some of them graduated medical school. Do yourself the favor and go elsewhere. (a year ago)

If you are not actually dying, I would avoid this hospital at all costs. It will save you money and may save your life to go to Lexington or Winchester, instead. Of my two experiences with KRMC, one I was charged nearly $2000, after insurance, just for the 10 minutes I spent with the physician over stomach pain in the ER. The tests and medicine was fully covered so literally just his time to talk to me for 10 minutes is supposed to be worth that kind of money. This is one of the most expensive, if not the most expensive, hospitals in the nation and the quality of care does not meet even basic standards. My grandmother was sent home after a stroke due to complete incompetence and could have suffered permanent damage. Luckily, we were wise enough to take her immediately to Lexington and ignore what the Jackson hospital said. Bottom line: The amount they charge should be criminal and the quality of care is deplorable. You will save a lot of money (and maybe your life) by going to any other hospital in Eastern KY.
