The mission of Jewish Hospital & St. Mary’s Foundation to provide health care services of world class quality to all people.

Donors to the Jewish Hospital & St. Mary’s Foundation gave more than $10 million in 2013 to enhance patient care, educate health professionals, support leading-edge medical research, and provide access to quality health care. 

Charitable support enabled Jewish Hospital to unveil a new, innovative hybrid operating room, and to continue to bring science to life through “Pulse of Surgery” – an educational program that allows students to view live heart surgeries being performed at Jewish Hospital and interact with the surgical team via broadband link in real time. 

Additionally, funding through the Armed Forces Institute of Regenerative Medicine furthers Jewish Hospital’s hand transplant program, and a Jewish Heritage Fund for Excellence grant supports pancreatic islet cell research. 

About KentuckyOne Health
KentuckyOne Health was formed when two major Kentucky health care organizations came together in early 2012. KentuckyOne Health combines the Jewish and Catholic heritages of the two former systems – Jewish Hospital & St. Mary’s HealthCare and Saint Joseph Health System. In late 2012, the organization formed a partnership with the University of Louisville Hospital | James Graham Brown Cancer Center.  The nonprofit system is committed to improving the health of Kentuckians by integrating medical research, education, technology and health care services wherever patients receive care. KentuckyOne Health has more than 200 locations including hospitals, physician groups, clinics, primary care centers, specialty institutes and home health agencies across the state of Kentucky and southern Indiana.
