Overview of Clay County Hospital

Clay County Hospital was established as a non-profit and governmental general acute care hospital that first opened on September 3, 1951 as a 20-bed facility under the funding of the Hill-Burton Act and Appalachian funding. In the 1960's, 15 beds were added, and in 1976, a 4-bed CCU unit and additional beds brought the facility to 53-licensed beds.
