As we shared earlier today in a Special Newsline, KentuckyOne has announced that it will focus its operations on a smaller footprint centered in central and eastern Kentucky. This means that moving forward, the organization will let go of some of its facilities. This decision will impact a number of facilities including former SCN ministry Sts. Mary & Elizabeth, which will be transitioned to new ownership. KentuckyOne Health says it will continue to operate and will remain committed to facilities and services until the time of transition.
A number of facilities will remain a part of KentuckyOne, including former SCN ministries Flaget Memorial Hospital, Our Lady of Peace, and Saint Joseph Hospital. Please join us in prayer for all members of the KentuckyOne family. The Congregation is hopeful that when the transition is finalized and new owners have been identified for Sts. Mary & Elizabeth, Sisters will have the opportunity to share the charism and history of this Louisville ministry. Should you receive any calls from members of the media, please have them contact Diane Curtis at (502) 930-9986 or Dana Hinton at (502) 507-6479.
