LaFollette Medical Center has served the LaFollette community for more than 50 years.
LaFollette Medical Center has joined doctors and city and county leaders to provide quality health care to Campbell County and surrounding communities — building upon the structure, as well as the critical services it provides.
In the summer of 1956, LaFollette Community Hospital opened with 44 beds, 41 employees, and one delivery room. Four years later, a new wing was built adding 32 new beds and an emergency room.
In 1968, a 50-bed nursing home was built. The hospital was remodeled in 1973 and another 48 beds were added to the nursing home.
In 1982, the hospital was renamed the LaFollette Medical Center.
At the turn of the century, the hospital received the single largest investment in 25 years — greatly improving the medical service that doctors, nurses, and associates deliver every day.
LaFollette Medical Center is proud to be Campbell County's hospital and stands ready to provide quality health care to patients throughout the region.
