King’s Daughters Track in Cardiology

The health and well-being of the community is vitally important to us at King's Daughters. We owe our very existence to forward-thinking community members, to volunteers who helped shape King's Daughters, and to the patients and families who choose us for their care.

Our commitment to community drives us to give back. Our team members, physicians and health professionals provide free screenings and education, and participate in health fairs and other special events designed to help people and the community be healthier.

This track in Cardiology is located at UK King’s Daughters Hospital in Ashland, Kentucky. This hospital is affiliated with the University of Kentucky and located at a critical access hospital in Eastern Kentucky.
