More: The Parrish Campus has developed over roughly 114 years. Originally the location of the Owensboro City Hospital, OMHS Parrish Campus has grown through numerous expansions that now include roughly 1.1 million square feet of occupied space in 21 buildings. The oldest structures were constructed in 1938. The newest building, the Mitchell Memorial Cancer Center, was erected in 2005. The more than 30-acre campus contains landscaping, infrastructure and parking for 1,330 vehicles in lots and another 519 spaces in a four-story parking garage. In 2006, the OMHS Board of Directors decided that building a new hospital complex would provide the best long-term solution to serve healthcare needs for the 11-county region because the existing hospital was nearing the end of its useful life.
