University Hospital looks for new merger partner

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- University Hospital will start looking for a new partner after being left out of a statewide merger late last year.

U of L trustees have voted to give hospital officials permission to search for new partners to help strengthen it financially.  University Hospital had hoped to merge with Jewish Hospital & St. Mary's HealthCare and St. Joseph Health System.

Governor Beshear prevented the deal from happening after raising concerns about private ownership of a public hospital.
