Pikeville Medical Center celebrates 85 years in business

It was just named national hospital of the year and now, Pikeville Medical Center is celebrating 85 years.

Several people from the medical field and the community came together to recognize the mile stone.

Leaders from the area talked to the crowd, and hospital officials say the growth of the hospital is amazing.

"Very few organizations survive 85 years, much less survive and thrive like this one has. We've gone from an organization that has maybe 10 nurses and 6 doctors to one that now has 225 doctors." Pam May, legal counsel for the hospital and CEO Walter May's wife says.

In recognition of 85 years and the medical center's honors, city officials declared January as Pikeville Medical Center month.
