Kimble Hospital is committed to providing quality healthcare through a team of dedicated medical providers and caring staff.
Kimble Hospital and its medical staff have served Kimble and surrounding counties for over 55 years, providing essential inpatient and outpatient health care services to community residents.
Federally designated as a Critical Access Hospital, Kimble is licensed for 15 inpatient, acute care beds, all of which may be used as "swing beds" or skilled nursing beds. As a result, the hospital can care for many inpatients with acute and chronic medical conditions such as heart attacks, congestive heart failure, pneumonia and influenza, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, diabetes, etc. In addition, swing beds allow patients who have had surgery at another hospital recover closer to home.
As a Level IV Trauma Center, the emergency department at Kimble Hospital serves as the first responder for injured and ill patients living or visiting in the area, or traveling on I-10, and provides lifesaving care, and stabilizing patients who may need to be transferred to another facility. The quality of care at the hospital and in the emergency, department is enhanced using telemedicine services which bring virtual specialists to assist with diagnosis and treatment plans.
Other hospital services supporting both inpatient and outpatient care include: CT scanning, general x-ray and ultrasound; physical therapy and cardiac rehabilitation; and laboratory testing. The hospital also offers outpatient diagnostic GI procedures and mental health services.
