Continuing Care Hospital and Our Lady of Peace, each part of KentuckyOne Health, were honored by the Kentucky Hospital Association (KHA). The KHA Quality Awards honor hospital leadership and innovation in quality, safety and commitment to patient care.

Continuing Care Hospital, Lexington, received a Quality Award for its antimicrobial stewardship program, which reduces the amount of antibiotics administered to patients. The program offers several benefits, including reduction of antibiotic resistance and lowering clostridium difficile (bacteria) rates in the hospital.

The long-term acute care hospital in Lexington acts as a “hospital within a hospital” and is located within Saint Joseph Hospital. Continuing Care Hospital also received the Quality Award in 2012, 2013 and 2016.

Our Lady of Peace, Louisville, received a Quality Award for its hippotherapy program, which uses horseback riding as therapeutic and rehabilitative treatment. The program helps improve coordination, balance, strength and communication for patients.

This is the third time Our Lady of Peace, which offers a comprehensive array of behavioral health and substance use treatment services, has received this award. The hospital also received the KHA Quality Award in 2012 and 2014.
