Flaget Memorial in Bardstown marks 50 years

Flaget Memorial Hospital, Bardstown, Ky., celebrated 50 years of service to its community on January 8. A special newsletter published to commemorate the anniversary shares stories of the hospital’s history, which was built on land owned by the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth, who also agreed to staff and operate the hospital. Ten patients sought care at Flaget Memorial on its opening day; today, the hospital has more than 2,500 inpatient admissions, 360 births and 65,000 outpatient visits per year.
