A group of physicians and staff at Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital (LCRH) utilized a video presentation to outline services and programs at the Somerset hospital during the July membership meeting of Somerset-Pulaski County Chamber of Commerce. LCRH was corporate sponsor of the chamber session at The Center for Rural Development.
