The Appalachian Mountains are a majestic world that is full of life and opportunity. History, adventure, culture, hospitality and natural wonders beg to be explored throughout Kentucky and West Virginia.
The roots of diversity run deep in the mining and lumber communities of this region. Industrious individuals from all over the world flocked to the region to find prosperity within these once booming business sectors. The rich global heritage and traditions of our earliest settlers still exist within these communities. It’s incumbent on ARH—as a business and community leader—to carry that legacy of diversity into the future and beyond.
From our very beginning, we’ve been rising to meet the healthcare needs of the people in Appalachia. Our independent, not-for-profit health system was formed in the 1960s when thousands of Appalachian citizens were going to lose their local hospitals. Since then, we’ve remained steadfast in our commitment to ensure that the people of southeastern Kentucky and southern West Virginia would always have a health system that works as hard for them as they do for one another.
