Ephraim McDowell Regional Medical Center (EMRMC) is a locally controlled not-for-profit 222-bed hospital located in Danville, Kentucky.


EMRMC took its name from Ephraim McDowell, a ground-breaking local physician who performed the first ovariotomy in the United States in 1809.

Following Dr. McDowell's successful surgery, Danville became home to a number of physicians. This led to the formation of a community hospital in 1887. Through the years, the hospital expanded often. It marked its centennial in 1987 by changing its name to Ephraim McDowell Regional Medical Center.[2]


EMRMC's primary service area includes Boyle County, Kentucky and five contiguous counties -- Casey, Garrard, Lincoln, Mercer, and Washington—with a total population of more than 140,000 residents.[2]

According to its IRS Form 990, in Fiscal Year 2007 EMRMC had assets of $110,438,710, income of $105,401,634, and revenue of $105,286,175.[3]

Thomson Reuters named EMRMC among its top 100 Performance Improvement Leaders. About 3,000 hospitals across the country were evaluated on analysis of data provided from public sources such as Medicaid and Medicare from a five-year period between 2001 and 2005.[4]
