Care when, where you need it!


​Heart disease strikes someone in the U.S. about every 40 seconds. It's the No. 1 cause of death in this country of both men and women. In the communities we ​serve, it's even more prevalent - and deadly - than in the rest of the nation. For more than two decades, the team at King's Daughters has worked tirelessly to address these statistics. It's our mission ... because the lives that are affected are those of our friends, neighbors and families.

Delivering world-class heart care is more than a job for us; it's a personal passion.

We are committed to continual improvement in the care and education we provide. We are at the leading edge when it comes to adopting new techniques, introducing new technology and providing our patients with the best opportunity for long and healthier lives.

We make care accessible, by putting our cardiologists, nurse practitioners and physician assistants in the communities where you live and work. We are committed to seeing you quickly, with same-day appointments available weekdays at many of our cardiology offices.

We adhere to the highest standards, having achieved accreditations and certifications in the treatment of Chest Pain, Atrial Fibrillation and Heart Failure. We were the first hospital in this region to achieve the prestigious ACE (Accreditation for Cardiovascular Excellence) accreditation for both our cardiac catheterization and percutaneous coronary intervention programs.

Nationally recognized care

The American College of Cardiology has recognized UK King's Daughters for demonstrated expertise and commitment in treating patients with chest pain. King's Daughters has been awarded Chest Pain Center Accreditation with Primary PCI continuously since 2004. Accreditation is based on rigorous onsite evaluation of our ability to evaluate, diagnose and treat patients who may be experiencing a heart attack.

Hospitals that have earned ACC Chest Pain Center with Primary PCI Accreditation have proven exceptional competency in treating patients with heart attack symptoms and have primary PCI available 24/7 every day of the year. They comply with standard Chest Pain Center protocols and are equiped with a robust hypothermia program for post-cardiac arrest treatment.

Our cardiology program has consistently been recognized by major, independent ratings groups for excellence in overall hospital care, cardiac care, cardiac surgery, heart attack treatment, and heart surgery.
