Currently, more than 350 physicians are members of Pikeville Medical Center's Medical Staff. During FY 2017, PMC welcomed 28 physicians, two physician assistants, eight certified registered nurse anesthetists, and 12 nurse practitioners to the organization.The physicians recruited during this time period consist of five anesthesiologists, one cardiothoracic surgeon, one primary care physician, three intensivists, seven emergency medicine physicians, two hematologists/oncologists, four hospitalists, one interventional radiologist, one podiatrist, one pulmonologist, one urologist, and one vascular surgeon.With the addition of these new physicians, PMC offers more than 400 services, including most specialties and many subspecialties. PMC, as a proud member of the Mayo Clinic Care Network, forged a partnership which was the first of its kind in the area. This powerful tool extends Mayo Clinic's knowledge and expertise to physicians and providers interested in working together in the best interest of their patients. PMC providers accessed Mayo Clinic resources, via an online point-of-care information system and electronic consulting process that connects physicians with Mayo Clinic specialists on questions of diagnosis, therapy or care management. The primary goal of the Mayo Clinic Care Network is to provide the benefits of Mayo Clinic knowledge and expertise close to home, decreasing the patient's need to travel outside the region for healthcare.In 2014, PMC completed a multi-million dollar expansion, adding an 11-story clinic building and a 10-story parking garage on the main campus to improve the accessibility of health care and efficiency in the manner in which that care is delivered. The PMC Clinic houses eight additional operating rooms, six endoscopy suites, 23 pre-op rooms, 27 post-op rooms and most of PMC's physician practices including cardiothoracic surgery, vascular surgery, colorectal surgery, trauma surgery, general surgery, endocrinology, interventional radiology, gastroenterology, urology, orthopedic trauma surgery, orthopedic surgery, hand surgery, podiatry, sports medicine, obstetrics/gynecology, pediatrics, infectious disease, nephrology, neurology, neurosurgery, physiatry, pulmonology, ophthalmology, optometry, oral/maxillofacial surgery, otolaryngology, plastic/reconstructive surgery, and surgical oncology. The 1,162-space parking garage connects to the PMC Clinic on each floor, allowing patients to conveniently park on the same floor as their physician's office.In addition to physician practices found in the clinic, PMC offers: bariatric surgery in Pikeville (Kentucky); cardiology general/invasive/interventional/electrophysiology in Pikeville, Whitesburg, Prestonsburg, and South Williamson (Kentucky) and Grundy (Virginia); oncology medical/hematology/radiation/gynecologic in Pikeville (Kentucky); neurology in Whitesburg, South Williamson, and Prestonsburg (Kentucky); family medicine in Harold and Shelby Valley (Kentucky); obstetrics/gynecology in Harold (Kentucky); pain management; dermatopathology; pathology; psychology; cardiac rehabilitation and pulmonary rehabilitation in Pikeville (Kentucky).PMC also offers emergency medicine services and utilizes around-the-clock Hospitalists, Intensivists and Neonatologists who devote their professional time to the care of hospitalized patients.PMC and the Pike County Kentucky Board of Education formed an innovative partnership during 2017 to provide nurse practitioners for the school system's 2017-2018 term, reaffirming PMC's commitment to be a leader in providing quality healthcare to the children of the region. PMC physicians completed 365,683 patient visits during FY 2017, an increase of 24 percent from the previous year.
