Harrison Memorial Hospital now has two additional providers to serve our patients. The HMH Physician Group: Primary Care has added Dixie Davidson, PA-C, as a Physician Assistant to the staff. Physician assistants are healthcare professionals who practice medicine as members of a team with their supervising physicians. They conduct physical exams, diagnose and treat illnesses, order and interpret tests, counsel on preventive care, prescribe medications, and assist in surgery.
Davidson joins Dr. Shane Gainey at the HMH Physician Group: Primary Care office located at 439 East Pleasant Street in Cynthiana.
“We are happy to have Dixie in our practice. By adding another provider, our patients will benefit in a number of ways, including improving their access to care,” said Gainey. read more

The Kentucky Institute for Patient Safety and Quality (KIPSQ) has launched its “Improving Patient Safety for Mom and Baby” project, and Harrison Memorial Hospital has been asked as one of 32 birthing hospitals statewide to participate. The project is made possible by a grant from the Anthem Foundation, with the hopes of improving healthcare delivery for both mother and baby. KIPSQ has partnered with the Anthem Foundation to provide education, tools and resources which will result in the best possible patient outcomes, both short- and long-term.
