Serving the community with better care, closer to home.
The hospital is governed by an eleven-member Board of Trustees who has full legal responsibility for operations. Three members of the Board serve by virtue of their offices: the Mayor of Murray, the County Judge-Executive and the Chief of the hospital medical staff. The other members are selected through a nominating process with four members appointed by the Murray City Council and four appointed by the Fiscal Court. The commissioners serve four-year terms.
The Board employs a president/CEO who has delegated the authority and responsibility necessary to operate the hospital in accordance with the policies established by the Board.
The medical staff of the Murray-Calloway County Hospital is appointed by the Board of Trustees to practice medicine within the hospital. The medical staff has organized itself forming by-laws, rules and regulations, and has established officers and committees that are responsible for the quality of medical practice in the facility.
The hospital exists to provide quality health services in a caring and cost-effective manner. It accepts patients without regard to race, creed, sex, religion, national origin, or sources of payment for care.
