About Baptist Health Medical Group
A physician-led medical group
Baptist Health Medical Group brings together all of Baptist Health’s employed providers into one comprehensive, multispecialty network serving residents of Kentucky, Indiana and neighboring states. Backed by the Baptist Health system of hospitals and led by experienced physicians who are distinguished in their fields, the group encompasses over 1,500 providers, including 800 physicians and more than 700 advanced practice clinicians. These professionals include primary care providers, as well as highly trained surgeons and specialists offering advanced treatments, technologies and care.
While many of the Medical Group’s administrative functions are centralized, Baptist Health recognizes that healthcare is delivered on a very personal level. Therefore, the governing structure includes local leadership councils and operations staff in each of the system’s three regions, Kentuckiana, East and West, to address each community’s unique needs. These councils work together to ensure that patients visiting a Baptist Health Medical Group provider can expect the same quality care at each of our practices and in each of our hospitals – care that is appropriate, timely and centered on our valued patients.

Located just off Interstate 75, between Lexington, Kentucky, and Knoxville, Tennessee, Corbin, has made history as the birthplace of Kentucky Fried Chicken. Colonel Harland Sanders developed his recipe for the world-renowned franchise in Corbin, and it’s celebrated today at the carefully restored original Sanders Cafe and museum.
Corbin has much to offer the outdoor enthusiast. Situated by the shores of Laurel Lake, amidst the Daniel Boone National Forest, it is home to Cumberland Falls State Resort Park, which boasts the Western hemisphere’s only “moonbow.” The park, often referred to as the “Niagara of the South,” offers 17 miles of nature trails, white water rafting, fishing, horseback riding, and more. Other parks, including Pine Mountain State Resort Park and Levi Jackson Wilderness Road State Park, are nearby.
Steeped in history, the city hosts a number of events, including an annual citywide festival, a downtown Farmers Market, Oktoberfest, a Native American festival and an antique car show. Redevelopment includes Sanders Park, the Corbin Rail Museum, the historic Engineer Street Bridge and walking path, and the refurbished Corbin Motor Speedway, the first race track in Kentucky to host a NASCAR race (in 1954). The city-owned Corbin Arena hosts numerous national recording acts and sporting events in its 100,000-square-foot venue.
