Founded by the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth in 1874, Sts. Mary & Elizabeth Hospital is a 331-bed primary care hospital offering advanced treatment in orthopedics, cardiology, medical imaging, surgical and emergency services. Three on-campus medical plazas provide office space for a wide array of physicians representing a number of specialties. Additionally, Sts.

Serving the south Louisville community for more than a century, Sts. Mary & Elizabeth has literally cared for generations of families in this community.
Sts. Mary and Elizabeth Hospital is part of KentuckyOne Health, one of the largest health systems in Kentucky with more than 200 locations including hospitals, outpatient facilities and physician offices, and more than 3,100 licensed beds. An 18-member volunteer board of directors governs KentuckyOne Health, its facilities and operations, including Sts. Mary and Elizabeth Hospital, with this purpose:
During 2015-2016, Sts. Mary and Elizabeth Hospital conducted a community health needs assessment (CHNA) to support its mission to enhance the health of people in the communities it serves by identifying health needs in these communities and prioritizing the allocation of hospital resources to meet those needs. Additionally, the completion of this report and subsequent approval and adoption by the KentuckyOne Health Board of Directors complies with CHNA requirements mandated by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 and federal tax-exemption requirements. This report will be made public and widely-available on or before June 30, 2016 and will cover July 1, 2016-June 30, 2019.
To easily share the information in this CHNA, we have created a one-page infographic to communicate the needs we identified. Please see the links below for the full report and the infographic flier.
Sts. Mary and Elizabeth Hospital will use the findings in the community health needs assessment to guide the coordinated efforts in addressing the identified health priorities. The efforts to address these identified health priorities will be described in an accompaniment to this document known as Sts. Mary and Elizabeth Hospital’s Implementation Strategies. This will be made public and widely available no later than November 15, 2016 and will guide work through June 30, 2019.
