About Us

Baptist Health Deaconess began as a single hospital in 1924 with the opening of the 120-bed Kentucky Baptist Hospital in Louisville. The system was formed following the opening in 1953 of the 117-bed Western Baptist Hospital in Paducah and the 1954 opening of the 173-bed Central Baptist Hospital in Lexington.

Trover Health System in Madisonville joined the Baptist family in September 2012. Today Baptist Health Deaconess is the largest not-for-profit healthcare system in Kentucky, leading the commonwealth with more than 85,000 discharges annually.
