Through Every Surgical Procedure

Compassionate Care Is Our Top Priority

To keep your body and your health at its best, sometimes surgery is a necessary course of action. If it is, your surgical team at AdventHealth Manchester, formerly Manchester Memorial Hospital, will be here to shepherd you safely through the process with the most-advanced technologies and minimally invasive surgery options available.

In addition to expert surgeons, physicians and specialists, your team will also include nurses from the Southeastern Kentucky area — professionals who understand our community and culture and who will be at your side to provide comfort and care that not only helps heal your body, but eases your mind and lifts your spirit as well.

We’re here to help you find the right physician or a location that’s convenient for you.
