About the Partnership

Jewish Hospital, a part of KentuckyOne Health, is an internationally renowned high-tech tertiary referral center developing leading-edge advancements in hand and microsurgery, heart and lung care, cancer care, home care, rehab medicine, sports medicine, orthopaedics, neuroscience, occupational health, organ transplantation and outpatient and primary care.  Site of the world’s first successful hand transplant, the world’s first and second successful AbioCor® Implantable Replacement Heart procedures, and world’s first trial of cardiac stem cells in chronic heart failure, the hospital is in the select group that performs heart, lung, liver, kidney and pancreas transplantation.
Jewish Hospital offers hand patients a specially designed experience specializing in treating hand injuries and diseases, including elective and urgent extremity care. Jewish Hospital has a dedicated Hand Care Emergency Room and the Hand Care Center has a suite of dedicated operating rooms staffed by health care professionals trained in caring for hand, arm and shoulder problems. The center and the team of hand surgeons from Kleinert, Kutz continue to showcase their experience and expertise in world-class hand care. The two organizations have had more than a 50-plus year relationship and have performed a number of firsts in hand and microsurgery including the world's first successful hand transplant, first reported repair of a digital artery, first double forearm replantation, and first double upper arm replantation.

The University of Louisville School of Medicine and Jewish Hospital have been partners and pioneers in the field of organ transplantation for over 35 years. The Transplant Center at Jewish Hospital holds Federal Designation to perform kidney, heart, lung, and liver transplants.

The Jewish Hospital & St. Mary’s Foundation was established to generate philanthropic support to underwrite programs and services of Jewish Hospital and its affiliates. The Foundation’s four main objectives are to:

  • Support medical education
  • Advance medical research
  • Acquire new technologies
  • and Enhance patient care.

 
Early funding for research on composite tissue allotransplantation and immunotherapy from the Jewish Hospital & St. Mary’s Foundation helped to bring about the nation’s first hand transplant.
