KentuckyOne Wants "Close Working Relationship" With University Hospital

University Hospital in Louisville, Ky., has attracted interest from KentuckyOne Health — the newly merged system that UH unsuccessfully tried to join just a few months ago, according to a Courier Journal report.

KentuckyOne is comprised of Jewish Hospital & St. Mary's HealthCare of Louisville and St. Joseph Health System of Lexington, Ky. UH was the third potential member of the three-system merger, but Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear rejected that proposal in late December, leaving the two systems to merge without UH into KentuckyOne.

Now, KentuckyOne CEO Ruth Brinkley has said the system still believes "a close working relationship with the University of Louisville School of Medicine and University Medical Center is important to our vision as an organization, to this community and citizens across the commonwealth," according to the report. University Medical Center is UH's operator.

A KentuckyOne spokesperson said the system will examine UH's request for proposals, which as of Monday had not been released, according to the report.
