Owensboro Medical Health System plans to raze part of its existing facilities as it prepares to open a new hospital next year. OMHS will continue to use four of its existing buildings, including the Mitchell Cancer Center, the Breckenridge medical office building, the emergency department building, and a parking garage.

A medical team in Owensboro is preparing to use a robotic surgical unit to perform a single-incision gall bladder removal. Friday's procedure at Owensboro Medical Health System will use a device known as the da Vinci Surgical System, which has been in use there since 2009.
