Regional Hospital, a 295-bed facility, provides medical services to an 11-county service area in south central Kentucky. The hospital is one of only three hospitals in the United States that serves both as a rural regional referral center and a disproportionate-share facility. Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital has completed nine major expansion projects since its opening in 1976. The most recent project included building a 116,000 square-foot, five-story medical tower and a three-story parking garage. Currently, the hospital is completing a new neuro/orthopedic unit.
Somerset is home to beautiful Lake Cumberland, a 65,000-acre lake with 1,200 miles of shoreline. Lake Cumberland offers a wealth of recreational opportunities and provides excellent fishing for crappie, bass and other types of fish. Water sports from sailing and water skiing to house-boating are all popular on the lake. General Burnside Island State Park, Kentuckys only state park located on an island, provides a peaceful retreat for campers, boaters, golfers and fishermen, with a campground and an 18-hole golf course. Four additional golf courses are located in the community. Just minutes south is Cumberland Falls State Park. Known as the Niagara of the South, Cumberland Falls boasts the only Moonbow in the Western Hemisphere, as well as white-water rafting, hiking and canoeing. Daniel Boone National Forest also offers exciting outdoor activities with more than 704,000 acres of mostly rugged terrain, with steep forested ridges, narrow ravines, 3,400 miles of sandstone cliffs and 600 miles of beautiful trails.
