Since its early days Red Bird Mission has worked to meet the health care needs of people in the Red Bird River Valley. Soon after teachers came, nurses and doctors arrived. Red Bird medical work began in 1922 with Miss Lydia Rice, RN as the first medical worker. Dr. Harlan Heim joined the staff in 1926. The first hospital was built at Beverly in 1928 but for many years, calls to mountain homes were made by medical staff on horseback. In 1959, a larger, modern hospital and outpatient clinic (1960) were constructed seven miles down Red Bird River in Clay County on property that had been obtained from Ford Motor Company in the 1940’s for food production for the Mission.
In partnership with the University of Louisville School of Dentistry, Red Bird provides affordable dentistry services including routine cleanings, fillings, dentures, crowns, implants and more. The latest technology including x-ray and 3-d printers are tools for the experienced doctors and staff to treat and prevent serious dental conditions.
