Beginning in January, Harrison Memorial Hospital partnered with behavioral health provider Comprehend, Inc. to offer behavioral health services to our patients. Comprehend, Inc. offers a comprehensive range of behavioral health services and has been serving the Buffalo Trace region of Kentucky for more than 47 years.
“By partnering with Comprehend, Inc., HMH is able to offer a much-needed service to the community,” said Sheila Currans, HMH Chief Executive Officer. “The trained behavioral professionals will be able to provide focused assessments that benefit the well-being of both the individual and family dynamic. Our HMH medical staff has been quite supportive of this added dimension of care being offered by Comprehend.”
For the fifth consecutive year, Harrison Memorial Hospital has earned the honor of one of the Best Places To Work in Kentucky. The award program is a project of the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce, the Kentucky Society for Human Resource Management (KYSHRM) and Best Companies Group. Harrison Memorial Hospital was selected as one of only 90 companies in Kentucky to make the list. We are listed among 35 other companies in Kentucky who fall into the medium-sized company rankings. The medium-sized company category includes those Kentucky businesses with 150-400 employees. The hospital will learn where they ranked within that medium-sized company category at the 11th annual awards dinner on April 14.
“I am elated that HMH has, for the fifth consecutive year, achieved our goal of setting a high standard of employment commitment. We are so proud of the people who are the heart of HMH,” said Sheila Currans, HMH Chief Executive Officer. “I am convinced that when our employees of HMH feel valued, the patient benefits. We are all better equipped to serve our community when employees truly know they are the core of our success.”
