Nursing Services

Medical/Surgical Services

Our nursing staff provides a caring touch and skilled competence to all our patients. We provide that personal touch because our patients are special to us. The hospital is staffed around the clock with registered nurses (RN), licensed practical nurses (LPN), and certified nursing assistants (CNA). Our staff will help you learn how to manage your illness. They'll provide education at your bedside and answer the many questions you may have. Whatever your need, you'll receive quality nursing care in a warm and friendly atmosphere at Hardin Medical Center.

The Medical/Surgical Services, located on the 2nd floor of the hospital, is referred to as the Annex.

Telemetry TLC

Our Telemetry unit, the Kate Smith Irvin Memorial Unit, features a state-of-the-art telemetry monitoring system provided by funds from Ms. Irvin's estate.Telemetry offers services to patients that are acutely ill, requiring and benefiting from more comprehensive nursing care.


The nurses on our obstetrical (OB) unit will help you welcome your new baby into the world, working with your physician to provide quality care for you and your newborn. We want this special time to be perfect for all our mothers-to-be, and we'll provide that personal touch.

Our OB unit includes three labor-delivery-recovery rooms. One room is dedicated to C-Section deliveries. The unit also has eight PostPartum beds and a Centralized Level 1 Newborn Nursery with eight bassinets.


Our surgical facility is staffed by experienced surgical nurses who assist your physician. The facility includes three well-equipped surgical suites, one endoscopic suite, and one OB surgical suite located on the OB unit. No visitors are allowed in these areas. Visitors are, however, allowed to visit with you in the short-stay area prior to and after surgery.
