Jackson Purchase Medical Center
Welcome to Mayfield, a western Kentucky town near the Land Between the Lakes, surrounded by rich, green pastures and tree-lined country lanes.
Jackson Purchase Medical Center is the sole provider of acute care in Graves County and draws patients from the eight counties that make up the Jackson Purchase region, nestled between the Tennessee and Mississippi rivers. The 107-bed facility is accredited by The Joint Commission, and its modern design includes all private beds, the ability to accommodate new medical technologies and a more efficient traffic flow for patients.
Mayfield and Graves County make up a family-focused community, with a 23-acre soccer complex, public and private pools, community park systems, a library and a YMCA. Dozens of antique and gift shops offer a treasure trove of wonders; the $35 million Luther F. Carson Center for the Performing Arts draws Broadway productions to the region; and the county’s close proximity to Paducah promises an abundance of events, festivals, art galleries, museums, shopping and the city’s famous Historic Riverfront.
The Land Between the Lakes anchors the Jackson Purchase region’s many outdoor recreation opportunities, with 300 miles of shoreline; 170,000 acres of forest; 200 miles of trails for biking, hiking, wildlife viewing and camping; more than 1,500 campsites; a nature center; living history farm; planetarium and observatory; horseback riding campground and public horse stable; and an off-road vehicle area.
