About Methodist Health

70+ Years Providing Healthcare in our community

Methodist Health was first founded in 1946 in Western Kentucky. At the time it contained 80 beds on one story. Today, our facility consists of two hospitals, including a 192 bed hospital in Henderson, and a 25 bed Critical Access Hospital in Morganfield. We also manage the Methodist Physician Group, a team of over 40 medical professionals working throughout 14 clinics in Western Kentucky.

Throughout our decades of service we have been guided by our mission and vision:
