Our UK Partnership


In its ongoing effort to deliver an advanced level of care, Rockcastle Regional continues to partner with the University of Kentucky HealthCare.

“UK HealthCare’s partnership with Rockcastle Regional is a great benefit to our healthcare system and community,” said Stephen A. Estes, President and CEO of Rockcastle Regional. “Access to quality care is a chronic challenge in rural areas of the state, but our affiliation with UK is helping us meet that challenge by providing our community with leading-edge specialty care.”

Two examples of success are Rockcastle’s partnership with the UK Markey Cancer Center and the Gill Heart Institute. In both cases, internationally known UK specialists have joined the Rockcastle team.

“Our partnerships with UK are win-win situations because they reflect Rockcastle Regional’s pursuit of excellence and UK HealthCare’s commitment to rural Kentucky,” Estes said.
