Lexington-based KentuckyOne Health has entered into an affiliation agreement with Taylor Regional Hospital, a 90-bed facility in Campbellsville, Ky.

Under the agreement, Saint Joseph Hospital in Lexington, part of KentuckyOne, will provide access to subspecialty services not currently available at Taylor Regional. The parties are already working to expand spine surgery to Taylor Regional.

The affiliation agreement will also allow KentuckyOne and Taylor Regional to collaborate on payer contracting and supply chain.

"In shaping the future of KentuckyOne Health, it is important that we engage partners in communities across Kentucky to help share resources and increase access to the exceptional specialty care found at Saint Joseph Hospital," said Bruce Tassin, market CEO for KentuckyOne Health and president of Saint Joseph Hospital. "We have a long history of caring for many patients from Taylor County and surrounding areas. By establishing this new affiliation agreement, we will strengthen that bond and engage in a new partnership to support health and wellness in the local Campbellsville community."
