KentuckyOne Health signs removed from University Hospital buildings this weekend

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The sign that once displayed the name of KentuckyOne Hospital has come down.

After four years with KentuckyOne, University Hospital and James Graham Brown Cancer Center has reverted back to University Medical Center.

Crews were out Saturday removing the KentuckyOne signs.

KentuckyOne agreed to return the hospital and cancer center to the university on July 1 after a 3-year-old joint operating agreement fell apart last year.

"Both of the organizations agreed it would probably be better for us to separate out of the joint operating agreement, and that way each institution can go ahead and move forward on their own," University Hospital spokesperson Gary Mans said.

Besides Jewish Hospital, KentuckyOne plans to sell the Frazier Rehabilitation Institute, Saints Mary and Elizabeth Hospital in South Louisville, and Jewish Hospital Shelbyville.
