HRMC is also home to Highlands Clinic, a specialty care clinic offering 25 areas of specialty medicine. These specialty clinics are staffed by physicians from the University of Kentucky and other medical specialists from around the commonwealth who travel to the clinic on a weekly or bi-weekly basis to provide consultant or follow-up care in multiple areas. These include neurosurgery, oncology, cardio-thoracic, and high-risk prenatal care, among others. The purpose of these specialty clinics is to eliminate the need for patients to travel 120 miles (190 km) to Lexington to see a specialist. These clinics are bi-located, with one on site at the HRMC main campus, and the other located in Paintsville.
