A new statewide alliance formed among 10 Kentucky health systems may become a model for other states, especially low-income ones such as the Bluegrass State.

Becker’s Hospital Review listed these important things about it:

1. “The alliance is known as the Kentucky Health Collaborative.”

2. “The 10 initial health systems who have signed on as charter members of the new collaborative are:

  • Appalachian Regional Healthcare (Lexington)
  • Baptist Health (Louisville)
  • Ephraim McDowell Health (Danville)
  • LifePoint Health (Brentwood, Tenn.)
  • Norton Healthcare (Louisville)
  • St. Claire Regional Medical Center (Morehead)
  • St. Elizabeth Healthcare (Edgewood)
  • The Medical Center (Bowling Green)
  • UK HealthCare (Lexington)
  • Owensboro Health (Owensboro) ”

3. “Officials with the health systems said their primary objectives are raising the standards of care, addressing Kentucky’s poor health statistics and lowering healthcare costs through greater efficiencies.”

4. “CEOs of the founding health systems are serving on a steering committee that is guiding the formation and development of Kentucky Health Collaborative.”

5.” As the collaborative moves forward, it will extend the opportunity to join to a wider pool of potential members throughout Kentucky.”
