Louisville-based KentuckyOne Health, a division of Englewood, Colo.-based Catholic Health Initiatives, laid off two senior vice presidents and the president of Frazier Rehab Institute on Friday, according to the Courier-Journal.

In an internal announcement that wasn't publicly shared, KentuckyOne said the following executives were ousted: Damian Alagia, MD, senior vice president and chief physician executive, who was laid off; Michael Spine, senior vice president of strategy and business development, whose position was cut; and Randy Napier, president of Frazier Rehab Institute in Louisville and Southern Indiana Rehab Hospital in New Albany, whose position was also eliminated.

KentuckyOne CNO Velinda Block, DNP, RN, who previously shared her decision to leave the system, resigned, and her position will not be filled, according to the report.

KentuckyOne spokesman David McArthur told the Courier-Journal the moves are part of a "series of system-level and facility leader transitions."

KentuckyOne, which was formed in 2012, has faced financial troubles for years. In 2014, the system laid off 500 employees, according to the Courier-Journal.
