It was nearly 40 years ago, in July 1974, when our facility fi rst opened its doors as King's Daughters Memorial Hospital. Now, as we mark our fortieth anniversary year, we feel honored and blessed to still be providing our friends and neighbors with the highest standards of quality and clinical excellence available today, along with access to the latest in medical technologies and procedures. During the past four decades, we've seen a lot of changes in the way medicine is practiced. Along the way, Frankfort Regional has added new services and improved our facilities to stay on the leading edge of health care. As we move forward through what might be the greatest period of transformation the healthcare industry has ever seen, we would like to assure our community that we will continue to progress and thrive. We'd like to remain your trusted local healthcare resource for the next 40 years and beyond. Sincerely, Chip Peal CEO, Frankfort Regional Every patient should know: I practice medicine with the same philosophy that guides every aspect of my life: Every task becomes meaningful when we give it our full attention and pursue excellence. Working in orthopedic medicine is great because: We often see people who have debilitating problems, life-limiting injury or illness, and we can frequently provide a solution to dramatically improve someone's life. That's fulfilling.
