I did not know it was called the Smith Hospital, but I had a family member born there in 1937. What kind of info are you looking for on Dr. Keith Smith? My mom has mentioned that Dr.'s name before and could probably help with any questions.

The place should be inspected by the city and maybe torn down. It has to be 100 years old..

No, I know mom doesn't have any photos of the hospital but you may be able to find some old photos in newspaper articles from that time.

I was born in smith hospital in 1949. I had never seen a photo of it till now. My parents moved to PA when I was a baby. The history of the drs smith is interesting. Corbin seems like a nice city. I wonder what it would have been like to have grown up there.

I've never heard of the hospital but have heard of the doctor a time or two! I now live in PA as well but was raised in Corbin. It is a nice city just needs ran better! Pennsylvania living and Kentucky living is completely different.

I know the smith hospital was there but I don't know where. Corbin Municipal Hospital was built in 51. I don't know when it was changed to Southeastern Kentucky Baptist Hospital, or SEK for short, but I remember the entrance had both names on it in the late 60's. As far a Dr. Smith. He delivered my sister in 54, and me in 61, and then my sister first son in 74. I guess Dr. Smith delivered half the kids in Whitley Co. between the mid 40's to late 70's. He passed away a long time ago, but my mom and sister thought he was a great doctor.
