University Hospital viability "questionable at best" without partner (KY)

Courier-Journal, May 24, 2012
Even if University Hospital in Louisville improves its operations and business strategy, its long-term viability is "questionable at best" if it does not partner with another hospital and expand its patient base, according to a consultant's report released Wednesday. Consultants from Dixon Hughes Goodman of Hudson, Ohio, were advising the hospital?s ad hoc committee, which was established to oversee an operational review of the 329-bed site with an eye toward bolstering finances. The committee voted unanimously to accept the report, which will go to the board of University Medical Center, the nonprofit company that runs the hospital.
