Stephen Hall, MD – All About the Center for Women’s Health at Frankfort Regional Medical Center


I’m from a small town – Mount Sterling,
Kentucky and so this, Frankfort, suits my needs for that purpose from the
standpoint of a small town, small community family atmosphere, getting to know
people a little bit more on a personal basis. I finished my training of
residency at University of Kentucky in 1993. Then went to Western Kentucky and
practiced for a few years before I came back here in Central Kentucky and we’ve been in this area probably
now for almost 20 years now. I like for the patient be
involved in her care which means involved in her decisions as well, what’s involved with her taking
care of her medical problems in certainly in exciting
times of having babies so I think it’s important to
get as much as the patient involved as well as the family members
involved and I think we do a good job of that here. Treating the patient more, just not for their medical problems, but also the whole family. Well I think just by the nature that
being a little bit of a smaller hospital I think we can be a little more
attentive to the details of a little bit more TLC that the patients can receive
without sacrificing quality of care. I think there are several things that
probably the general public aren’t aware of whether it be our water labor tub
that we have for the women that want to experience labor in a bath or a tub
setting. We’ve got an NICU that I’d put up against just about anybody’s that’s not
tertiary care facility because it’s staffed by neonatologists that come from
Louisville, Kentucky 24/7. And I think that’s probably one of our
best-kept secrets in Frankfort. I think they could do a fabulous job
and it’s interesting you ask me that because I can speak to that of being a physician
and I can speak to that as being a father. I’ve delivered three of my children
here and so I’ve been on that end of sleeping on the couch or sleeping
on the pullout bed and know what I’ve interacted with those nurses and at
two o’clock in the morning or two o’clock in the afternoon as a father. And to be honest with you I was very
impressed with their knowledge and their professionalism at that time. I think I think it’s been fabulous you
know I think in small hospitals, in general, fight the attitude or the reputation of being subpar or being received as kind of a hospital and you’ve
got to go to a larger community. I’ve worked in all the hospitals
in Lexington. I’ve worked in this hospital and many other hospitals and
I would say that this offers the same level of care for our needs and our
patients that you would get anywhere else. And over the years I hope that that
reputation has continued to improve in a positive manner that they not only
don’t sacrifice anything from a standpoint of quality of care but they also give a
little bit more of that TLC that I think all of us would like to have.
