Hospital Merger Update

December 30, 2011

Dear Friends of UofL,

We received the Kentucky Attorney General's report and subsequent Governor’s decision this morning. We are disappointed on behalf of patients across the Commonwealth who would be the greatest beneficiaries of the proposed merger, and who have the most to lose if the merger does not move forward. As recently noted by a respected independent health care expert engaged by the Jefferson County Attorney, this merger is crucial to the future of University of Louisville Hospital.

Each of the partners remains committed to working together to further the joint vision that has guided us over the last several months.  We firmly believe that a strong alignment between our organizations will have positive benefits for the communities we serve and the health care of Kentuckians across the state.

We will continue to work with the Governor's office and other government officials to address the inaccuracies and noted concerns in the report.  We look forward to delivering a transaction in a form that the Governor would feel compelled to approve.
