MADISONVILLE, Ky. (WFIE) - Baptist Health and Deaconess are now operating together under the new name Baptist Health Deaconess Madisonville.

The CEOs unveiled a new sign Wednesday morning at the Madisonville location.

This new joint operation includes the hospital, medical group and outpatient facilities in Madisonville, Powderly, Dawson Springs, Princeton and Hopkinsville.

A ribbon cutting was even held to mark the new logo and signage at the hospital.

Officials say the new sign represents the systems working together, but they are still both distinct.

”We’re excited about what this means for people throughout western Kentucky,” Robert Ramey with Baptist Health Deaconess Madisonville said. “We’re going to have access to work with two of the largest healthcare systems in this part of the country. We’re going to have access to resources that we have, and the expertise that they have as they expand our services here in Madisonville to provide more care for our patients.”

Officials say their priority now is physician recruitment and modernizing their facilities.
