KentuckyOne closing in on Jewish Hospital deal, CEO memo indicates

Louisville-based KentuckyOne Health may be nearing a sale of Jewish Hospital after about two years.

In an email obtained by the Courier Journal, KentuckyOne's interim CEO for its Louisville market suggested Jewish Hospital sale discussions with the University of Louisville are progressing.

"In particular, the discussions with U of L Health have been very positive and have progressed to the point that we have now begun preliminary planning for the possible transition of KentuckyOne's providers, staff and services to U of L Health," Deborah Lee-Eddie's email said, according to the Courier Journal.

Ms. Lee-Eddie also noted that leaders from KentuckyOne and its parent company, Chicago-based CommonSpirit Health, created a transition task force for the transaction.

Jewish Hospital has been on the market since 2017. Questions about the hospital's financial viability have clouded the sale process.
