Hazard ARH Regional Medical Center is proud to be the first Eastern Kentucky hospital to join the UK Stroke Affiliate Network. This partnership allows residents to access emergency stroke care even faster. It is critical to get emergency care close to home because even a few extra minutes on the road can lead to more extensive brain loss. Hazard ARH’s affiliation with UK will help the staff provide better patient care. With both hospitals working together, we can maximize the potential for the best possible outcome.
