Manchester Memorial Hospital | Healthy Connections | Winter 2018

A DVENTIST HEALTH SYSTEM, the parent company of Manchester Memorial Hospital (MMH), is investing $9.4 million in a new medical building to provide the community with high- quality care close to home. MMH has been serving the residents of Clay County and the surrounding community for decades, delivering care based on the Christian principle of whole-person health. This 49-bed community hospital is part of one of the largest healthcare systems in the country, Adventist Health System (AHS). Earlier this year, AHS President/CEOTerry Shaw visited MMH, the system’s only hospital in Kentucky. “Manchester Memorial Hospital is a special place that has long been a pillar of the community in Clay County and is actually one of the very first hospitals I visited when I joined Adventist Health System more than 30 years ago,” said Shaw. “It’s good to be able to spend time, once again, with the caregivers here who are so dedicated and enthusiastic about providing quality, whole-person, compassionate care.” Small hospital, big resources AHS is a national leader in quality, safety and patient satisfaction, with its hospitals sharing the same clinical, technology, and business practices and systems. Through our membership in AHS, Clay County resi- dents have access to some of the latest clinical and tech- nological advancements, coupled with the convenience of receiving the medical care they need without having to leave the local area. The visit allowed Shaw to spend time with hospital leadership and team members to discuss the future of AHS, the fulfillment of the organization’s mission, and ways to work better together to serve patients and the community.
