Radiology & MRI
The Mission of the Department of Radiology is to deliver high-quality medical care to our patients, educate health-care professionals, and increase our understanding of health and disease.
Our mission is distinctive in that we are responsible for the introduction of new technology related to imaging. This requires innovative development, honest evaluation, and ongoing teaching of the medical applications of these technological developments.
Patients are the reason for our department's existence, and must be accorded the central role in our professional activities. We are first and foremost responsible to our patients and consulting physicians. Our paramount mission is to provide competent, courteous, and compassionate clinical services which are uniformly of the highest quality. We must respond to requests for services from patients and referring physicians promptly and intelligently. Clinical responsibilities to individual patients take precedence over all other demands.
Trigg County Hospital has a group of Doctors on our Medical Staff who specialize in interpreting all Radiology procedures. These Doctors are called Radiologists. Through the development of technology, we send our Radiology Procedures through a secured internet line to Chicago Ill and receive a reading on your tests within an hour of the procedures 24 hours a day and seven days a week. At the time we receive your test reading, we send a copy of the results to your ordering physician.
We offer a variety of tests to our Patients and Medical Staff. If you have an interest or need more understanding of specific Diagnostic Imaging, please click on that specialty below for additional information.

Trigg County Hospital is a 25-bed critical access facility located near beautiful Lake Barkley and scenic Land Between the Lakes. The hospital opened its doors to the citizens and visitors of Trigg County and the surrounding area on April 22nd, 1952. That day, Former Kentucky Governor, Lawrence Wetherby, made a statement which still very much describes Trigg County Hospital to this day: "There are larger hospitals in the world, but none more efficient or beautiful."
