U of L one step closer to merger

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- The University of Louisville Board of Trustees has authorized the institution's executive vice president of health affairs to complete negotiations and finalize an agreement with a new partner for University Medical Center (UMC) and the University of Louisville.

At its Oct. 11 meeting, the trustees authorized Dr. David Dunn to work with University Hospital to finalize and sign an agreement with one of the entities who responded to a February request for proposals.

UofL and UMC have been looking for a health care partner since January 2012 when Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear rejected an earlier proposed deal with Kentucky One HealthCare.
