University of Louisville Facilities to Join KentuckyOne Health

The University Medical Center (UMC) and the University of Louisville (UofL) announced a partnership that brings together University Hospital and the James Graham Brown Cancer Center with KentuckyOne Health.

The new collaboration brings an academic medical center and vital regional safety net hospital into KentuckyOne. 

The partnership will be structured as a joint operating agreement between UMC and KentuckyOne, in which KentuckyOne will oversee most of the day-to-day operations. UMC will retain ownership of its assets and will operate the Center for Women and Infants (CWI).

UofL, UMC and KentuckyOne also entered into an academic affiliation agreement that ensures the continued training and education of the next generation of health care providers. At the same time, the agreement provides UofL with the resources to recruit and retain quality faculty who serve as teachers, researchers and clinicians.

The partnership has an expected implementation date of March 1, 2013, or before. More information is available at
