New agreement provides greater access, efficiencies and support to the Campbellsville community
through a relationship with Saint Joseph Hospital
Lexington, Ky. (March 15, 2018) — KentuckyOne Health is pleased to announce a new affiliation agreement with Taylor Regional Hospital in Campbellsville. This new agreement will bring greater alignment and support with Saint Joseph Hospital and the Lexington-based KentuckyOne Health.
The affiliation agreement will provide a range of support and increased efficiencies for Taylor Regional Hospital through Saint Joseph Hospital’s tertiary services and expertise.

By establishing this new affiliation agreement, we will strengthen that bond and engage in a new partnership to support health and wellness in the local Campbellsville community.”
Physician and administrative leaders at both organizations will work closely together to identify ongoing opportunities to support the local community.
“As a county-owned facility, we are proud to be a part of this community serving Taylor County and many of the surrounding counties for more than 50 years,” said Jane Wheatley, CEO, Taylor Regional Hospital. “Our goal is to treat each patient like they are a part of our own family. This affiliation with Saint Joseph Hospital and KentuckyOne Health will allow us to share resources and offer more services locally to increase our ability to support patients, all for the benefit of our community.”
Support for Taylor Regional Hospital via the affiliation agreement will begin immediately. KentuckyOne Health has long-standing experience and collaboration with Taylor Regional Hospital through prior agreements with KentuckyOne Health and Jewish Hospital.
