A Bit About Us

Hospital Center of Excellence was formed with one goal: Maintain excellent medical and mental healthcare in Lee+Fayette County and the surrounding region.  Our officers are unpaid local community leaders who take a collaborative, multi-disciplinary approach to advancing healthcare options. 

Performing Surgery


Dr. Russell Clark, serving as the HCOE Chief Medical Officer, announces the first services identified for return include outpatient general surgery, orthopedic surgery, and endoscopy. These services will have the provisions for observation care, if required.  While REH rules prohibit inpatient stays, the status does allow for observation care not to exceed an average length of stay of 24 hours.  HCOE is currently discussing with local and regional providers, other potential outpatient services including urology, ENT, ophthalmology, dialysis, pediatrics, oncology treatment, IV infusion, and mental health. HCOE is also considering telemedicine and telepharmacy options providing access to medical specialists.
