2014 - 2016 Community Health Needs Assessment

The Commonwealth of Kentucky is blessed with many assets that make it an incredible place to live and raise a family. Unfortunately, good health is not one of them. The state ranks among the 10 worst for such leading health indicators as cancer, obesity and death due to heart disease and stroke. Exacerbating these health challenges, more than half the state is designated as medically underserved with a growing scarcity of physicians, particularly in rural areas. To meet these daunting challenges, KentuckyOne Health was created in January 2012 through the merger of Jewish Hospital & St. Mary’s HealthCare and Saint Joseph Health System. By coming together, we have leveraged their considerable expertise and resources to achieve a bold goal: improving the health of every Kentuckian. To accomplish this, we are committed to:
 
  • Providing the highest quality care close to home
  • Reducing the incidence of disease
  • Promoting health equity
  • Advancing care delivery through clinical research and education
  • Shaping and leading health policy

KentuckyOne Health spans the state with more than 200 locations including hospitals, physician groups, clinics, primary care centers, specialty institutes and home health agencies. Our dedicated physicians and 15,000 employees share a profound sense of pride in building healthier communities across Kentucky and southern Indiana.

Each acute care hospital within KentuckyOne Health has conducted a community health needs assessment and created a plan to address identified needs where it has the resources and expertise to achieve success. We are pleased to present this report documenting this important work.

Improving the health status of Kentuckians is a big job. If we are successful, all of our citizens will be the winners—as will generations to come.
