Board named for combined hospital system includes 10 Louisvillians
Ten Louisvillians will be among the 18 board members who will govern the health care system that will be created by merging University Hospital, Jewish Hospital & St. Mary's HealthCare, and St. Joseph Health System of Lexington. The appointees to the still-unnamed organization's board of trustees were announced Wednesday. Three are from Lexington; four are from elsewhere in Kentucky; and one is from Colorado, home of Catholic Health Initiatives, which owns St. Joseph and will own 70% of the new system. The board's chairman is Bob Hewett, a retired utility and banking executive in Lexington and a longtime St. Joseph board member.
