Flaget Memorial Hospital opened in 1951 as a result of the determination of the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth who pioneered the development of health care institutions in Kentucky. In 2005, Flaget Memorial Hospital moved into its current facility on a large campus so as to allow its expansion for many years to come. Today, it is a 52-bed hospital located in Bardstown offering a full range of services including cancer care, orthopedics, women’s care, weight loss surgery and outpatient and primary care.
In 2010, the hospital opened the Flaget Cancer Center to better serve local residents. The center offers state-of-the-art radiation and medical oncology from professional, compassio-nate physicians and full support team. To continue the hospital’s mission, new primary care offices are being opened in medically-underserved areas such as New Haven, in Nelson County, and Hodgenville, in neighboring Larue County. Additionally, the hospital’s second and newest medical office building is be-ing built on its ever-expanding campus and will house Flaget Center for Orthopedics, Frazier Rehab at Flaget Memorial and primary care offices.
