Greenup County native Regina Stout recently was named executive director of Kentucky Heart Institute (KHI), an affiliate of the King’s Daughters Medical Center (KDMC) Heart and Vascular Center.
KHI was established in May 2007 to bring leading-edge cardiovascular research, outreach programs, prevention and education to benefit area doctors, hospitals and citizens.
Stout is an 11-year employee of KDMC and most recently served as director of Community Services. She has a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration and anticipates receiving in June her master’s degree in Strategic Leadership.
As executive director of KHI, her job responsibilities will include planning, execution, reporting and evaluation of all activities of KHI. She will serve as the principal liaison between KHI and KDMC.
KHI is on the front lines of important new discoveries in cardiovascular medicine. By participating in research studies, KHI adds to scientific knowledge, and ultimately, better treatments for patients. The institute’s research is lead by medical director and cardiologist Robert Touchon, M.D.
KHI investigates new medications and devices that already have proven beneficial in early studies. Many of the clinical trials are near the end of testing and on the verge of FDA approval and entering the marketplace. Local patients enrolled in clinical trials through KHI benefit from medicines and devices not yet available to the general public.
