Making Communities Healthier
Jackson Purchase Medical Center is a 107-bed (all private), Joint Commission-accredited facility. The hospital is the sole provider of acute care in Graves County and draws patients from the eight counties of the Jackson Purchase (the section of land between the Tennessee and Mississippi River that President Andrew Jackson purchased from the Chickasaw Indians in the early 1800s). At Jackson Purchase Medical Center, our goal is to deliver the best healthcare available in the greater western Kentucky region as we seek to make our community healthier.
