U of L president speaks out for first time since merger rejected
When University Hospital attempted to merge with Catholic Health Initiatives, Jewish Hospital and St. Mary's & Elizabeth Hospital, the proposal was rejected by Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear and Attorney General Jack Conway. Last week, Conway explained his reasoning for opposing the merger. On Tuesday, Dr. James R. Ramsey spoke publicly for the first time since the request was denied. Ramsey emphasized that University Hospital will always fulfill its responsibility to provide indigent care—an issue that became an obstacle during the proposed merger talks.
