The COVID-19 pandemic has hit hospitals and health care workers particularly hard, prompting Hoptown Chronicle to pay special attention to how COVID-19 has impacted Hopkinsville’s only medical hospital, Jennie Stuart Medical Center.

On Friday, there wasn't a single intensive care bed available in Christian County or within its 11-county region. In the majority of other areas, more than 95% of ICU beds were occupied.
For the week of Dec. 18 through 24, the hospital reached record highs for the total number of inpatient beds occupied by coronavirus patients and its overall proportion of COVID-19 patients.
