CELEBRATING 90 YEARS - May: ‘PMC’s future is bright’

PIKEVILLE — From humble beginnings as a small hospital on Peach Orchard Hill in 1924 to an affiliation with Mayo Clinic – Pikeville Medical Center (PMC) continues to grow. “The future of Pikeville Medical Center is bright,” PMC President/Chief Executive Officer Walter E. May told those gathered in the hospital’s atrium for a press conference to celebrate 90 years of service. May told a standing-room-only crowd that PMC’s expansion continues to put the hospital head and shoulders above others. “We currently have projects going on that total more than $69 million,” he said. “It takes one million dollars a day to open our doors and that number continues to grow. ” Plans are under way for a new cafeteria on the 11th floor, an elevator expansion, radiology and Heart Institute growth, as well as 29 new critical care more on this story...  

PMC employees participate in Angel Tree project

PIKEVILLE — The 10th floor of Pikeville Medical Center’s (PMC) new Clinic building was filled with Christmas gifts for 30 families throughout Pike and Floyd counties. More than a decade ago, Pikeville Medical Center created the Angel Tree project to help make Christmas special for families in need. Each year, family resource counselors at Pike and Floyd county schools identify families that are struggling and send PMC the ages, gender, sizes and wish lists of family members. Names are kept anonymous from donors.    The information for each family is then compiled at PMC and written on paper “Angels,” which are hung from a Christmas tree in the hospital’s human resources department.   PMC departments then select an Angel family from the tree and hit the stores to make their family’s Christmas a little merrier.   A wide variety of items more on this story...  

Managing holiday stress: PMC psychologist offers tips on building a happier holiday

If you are experiencing additional stress during the Christmas holiday season you are not alone.   Pikeville Medical Center’s Clinical Psychologist Dr. Catherine Huffman said, “A lot of holiday stress stems from financial stress. As Christmas approaches, I think it’s important for families to focus on relationships instead of consumerism.  Choose to spend time instead of money. ”  A recent survey by the American Psychological Association showed that 75 percent of Americans report money as a significant source of stress. Heightened stress during the holidays can lead to unhealthy stress management behaviors, such as overeating and drinking to excess. People tend to reduce their stress in ways they have learned over the course of time because they turn to what they know. You may take comfort in unhealthy stress management techniques just because they are familiar, even though they are not good more on this story...  

PMC gives the gift of life

PIKEVILLE — On Wednesday, December 3, Pikeville Medical Center awarded the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) gold medal for promoting organ, eye and tissue donation within the hospital and community. The award was presented by the Kentucky Organ Donor Affiliates (KODA). PMC is the only hospital in our region and among only 15 hospitals in the state of Kentucky to receive this prestigious award. Neurosurgeon and KODA Board Member Dr. Duane Densler said, “As PMC pursues Trauma Center certification, the number of traumatic brain injury patients referred to the hospital will increase. Unfortunately, the outcome for these patients is not always positive, but by being an organ donor they can help others by giving the gift of life; making something good out of a tragic situation. This award is a true honor for PMC staff and gives us an incentive to keep more on this story...
