KentuckyOne Health in Central, Eastern Ky. reverts names to CHI St. Joseph to reflect parent firm


The nine hospitals and associated facilities in Central and Eastern Kentucky that have borne the name KentuckyOne Health since 2012 have been renamed, signaling the eventual end of the short-lived KentuckyOne brand, Chris Otts reports for Louisville’s WDRB.

The operations of Denver-based Catholic Health Initiatives in Lexington, Nicholasville, Berea, London, Mount Sterling and Bardstown are now known as parts of the “CHI Saint Joseph Health System,” using the brand of the large Lexington hospital.

“Jewish Hospital and the other Louisville facilities KentuckyOne owns will retain the KentuckyOne brand as the organization continues efforts to sell them,” Otts reports.

The renamed facilities are “Saint Joseph and Saint Joseph East hospitals in Lexington, Saint Joseph Berea, Saint Joseph Jessamine, Saint Joseph London, Saint Joseph Mount Sterling, Flaget Memorial Hospital in Bardstown, Women’s Hospital at Saint Joseph East and Continuing Care Hospital,” Cheryl Truman reports for the Lexington Herald-Leader. “Saint Joseph Health Partners Clinically Integrated Network and Saint Joseph Medical Group provider practices in Central and Eastern Kentucky will also be part of CHI Saint Joseph Health, but will retain their individual names.

The KentuckyOne Health brand “was created in 2012 when the Lexington-based Saint Joseph Health System merged with Jewish Hospital & St. Mary’s Healthcare in Louisville,” WDRB notes. Once the Louisville facilities are sold, “We expect that the new organization will rebrand after the sale,” KentuckyOne spokesman David McArthur told the station.
