Madisonville Community College
Baptist Health Deaconess Madisonville maintains a close partnership with Madisonville Community College. For many years, our goal has been to support and expand nursing and allied health training programs in the area, which in addition to providing career training for local students, also helps fill the pipelines for the health workers and caregivers our facility requires.
The programs at MCC that Baptist Health Deaconess provides support for, are involved in, and draw from include:
- Biomedical Technology Systems
- Emergency Medical Services
- Health Science Technology
- Integrated Nursing PN RN
- Medical Information Technology
- Medical Laboratory Technician
- Occupational Therapy Assistant
- Physical Therapist Assistant
- Respiratory Care
- Surgical First Assistant Program
- Surgical Technology
We have also partnered with MCC in two innovative training facilities. We have a very high-level simulation hospital that is used to train health science students throughout Western Kentucky at all levels. This facility is currently being expanded to include critical care and surgery simulation capabilities. We also built a brand-new home health training facility, located adjacent to our campus.
The facility is designed as a house with two sides. One side is laid out as a typical home with a standard bathroom, stairs, and bedroom and the other side is laid out in an ADA-compliant manner, with assistive devices, wider doors, roll-in shower, etc. Both sides share a kitchen, utility room and living room. This facility provides real-life, hands-on training for home health workers, therapists, nursing students and others.
