Hospital Receives High Honor

An eastern Kentucky hospital receives high honors as one of the top one-hundred in the nation.

This begins our look at news affecting your health.

The Harlan ARH is named one of the nation's one-hundred top hospitals by Thomson Healthcare.

The award is based on statistics of quality, efficiency, and financial stability from more than three-thousand hospitals across the nation.

“The patients that I see are not just patients, or number, or diseases, they are friends and acquaintances and neighbors and so we take care of each other, not just as sick people but as a big family that always sticks together,” Dr. Abdul Dahhan said.

Harlan ARH was on the top one-hundred list in 1998 and hospital officials say they hope to make it an annual occurrence from now on.

King's Daughters Medical Center in Ashland is the only other hospital in eastern Kentucky to make it on the list.
