Jewish Hospital, part of KentuckyOne HealthJewish Hospital & St. Mary's HealthCareJewish Hospital & St. Mary’s HealthCare (JHSMH) is the newly merged organization created when two of the region’s most well established health systems—Jewish Hospital HealthCare Services and CARITAS Health Services—joined together on November 1, 2005. The merged company is today a major regional health network that includes 71 health care facilities with more than 1,900 licensed beds, over 42,000 discharges and almost 100,000 emergency room visits annually. JHSMH employs more than 8,100 people, who are dedicated to providing quality care to the residents of Louisville, Ky., and the surrounding areas. JHSMH provides a complete array of health care services in Kentucky and southern Indiana including: hospitals, behavioral health, assisted living, home health care, outpatient care, nursing home care, occupational health and rehab medicine.

Jewish Hospital, a 462-bed regional referral center, celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2003 and is the flagship of JSHMH. The hospital is anchored by two other well-known names in Louisville health care—Sts. Mary & Elizabeth Hospital, a 331-licensed bed community hospital founded in 1874 by the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth and located in Louisville’s South End, and Our Lady of Peace, founded in 1951 as one of the nation’s largest private, not-for-profit psychiatric hospitals with 416 licensed beds.

Among its many milestones, Jewish Hospital has been named one of America’s Best Hospitals for the fifth consecutive year by U.S. News & World Report. Many of Jewish Hospital’s clinical programs, affiliated with the University of Louisville School of Medicine, have achieved national rankings for excellence, as well as numerous medical “firsts” in Kentucky, the region, nation and world.

A premier heart hospital in the United States, Jewish Hospital is the site of the world’s first and second implants of the AbioCor® Implantable Replacement Heart. Jewish Hospital is also the only hospital in the country to perform both the totally implantable heart and the totally implant able Left Ventricular Assist System (the Lionheart™).

The Transplant Center – a program of Jewish Hospital and the University of Louisville School of Medicine – is in the elite percentage of organ transplant centers in the nation and one of a handful of hospitals performing all five solid organ transplants. The center was the 12th hospital in the nation to receive Federal Medicare Designation for kidney, liver, lung and heart transplants.

Jewish Hospital is one of an elite group of hospitals in the world offering hand patients a unique facility specially designed and equipped to treat hand injuries and diseases, including elective and urgent extremity care. The Jewish Hospital Hand Care Center is equipped with a hand emergency room and 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 nearly 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 reclamation, and first double upper arm reclamation.

In 2003, the “next generation” of health care arrived in Louisville with Jewish Hospital Medical Center East. With a “high tech” and “patient focused” vision, the facility is designed with the most comprehensive technological enhancements available, distinguishing it from any other outpatient facility. Also in 2003, the organization began managing the Owensboro Medical Health System Heart Program to improve the care of patients throughout that community.

Another new facility opened in May 2006 – Jewish Hospital Medical Center South in Bullitt County – an outpatient surgical, diagnostic and comprehensive primary care center with 24-hour emergency services, diagnostic imaging and magnetic resonance imaging services and ambulatory surgical services.

JHSMH continues its rise with a world-class rehab institute – an $88 million expansion of the Frazier Rehab and Neuroscience Center – which will take the facility from five floors to 15. The expansion will be completed in 2007.

To improve care for patients with advanced heart disease, Jewish Hospital has partnered with U of L and Kentucky’s Office of the New Economy to open the Cardiovascular Innovation Institute in 2007. The Institute will give patients access to the newest generation of bio-adaptive heart innovations that augment or replace railing hearts.

Sts. Mary & Elizabeth Hospital (1874) and Our Lady of Peace (1951) were founded by the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth and were a part of Catholic Health Initiatives, the nation’s second largest Catholic hospital system, since 1997. St. Mary’s is a general acute-care hospital that offers orthopaedics, cardio-pulmonary medicine, cancer care, interventional radiology and rehabilitation, among other services. Our Lady of Peace offers 21 different psychiatric inpatient, outpatient and partial programs for children, adolescents and adults. In 2003, it received the Silver Award from the American Psychiatric Association as offering some of the most innovative children and adolescent treatment programs in the U.S. Also in 2003, Catholic Health Initiatives awarded Our Lady of Peace a $300,000 grant to pilot psychiatric services programs in primary care physician offices-making it one of only two organizations in Kentucky to provide psychiatric counseling services in physician offices.

The Physician Group (formerly CARITAS Physician Group), which became a part of JHSMH in November 2005 at the time of the merger, continues to meet the growing medical needs of the community by providing quality physician groups to care for our patient-primarily in Louisville’s South End. Included in CPG is Fairdale Family Medical, Westside Family Medical, Jefferson Internal Medicine, Valley Medical Associates and Sun Valley Medical. They join the practices of Oak Street Family Medicine, Southend Medical, Haller & Hazlett, and Family Practice Associates to provide more than 70 physicians in nine locations throughout Jefferson County, Kentucky.

VNA Nazareth Home Care, also a part of JHSMH, combines the strengths and services of the former Visiting Nurse Association (VNA) with CARITAS Home Health. Together along with Southern Home Care, the home care agency serves counties in Kentucky and southern Indiana and makes over 250,000 house calls per year.

As JHSMH builds on its combined 231 years of providing excellent health care to the communities it serves, the organization will continue to expand and seek new opportunities to provide innovative services—both now and in the future.
