Louisville hospitals embracing alternative medicine

The Courier-Journal, February 25, 2013
Hospitals across the region are increasingly weaving "complementary" services such as healing touch, yoga and art and music therapy into their care—reflecting a resurgence in these healing methods nationwide and an effort to combine them with traditional methods to form "integrative medicine." Cancer programs at University and Baptist Health Louisville, for example, offer patients an array of services. Norton Healthcare is expanding its complementary offerings and re-emphasizing them. And KentuckyOne Health plans to launch a pilot "integrative health" program next year.
