Our Lady of Peace honored by the Kentucky Hospital Association
Louisville facility recipient of 2017 Quality Award


Louisville, Ky. (May 23, 2017) – Our Lady of Peace, part of KentuckyOne Health, has received a top honor from the Kentucky Hospital Association (KHA), demonstrating dedication to patient safety and care.

On May 19, six hospitals were recognized with KHA Quality Awards at the 88th Annual KHA Convention in Lexington, including Our Lady of Peace and Continuing Care Hospital, both part of KentuckyOne Health. The KHA Quality Awards honor hospital leadership and innovation in quality, safety and commitment to patient care.

Our Lady of Peace received a Quality Award for its hippotherapy program, which involves the use of horseback riding as therapeutic and rehabilitative treatment. The program helps improve coordination, balance, strength and communication for patients.

“We are honored to once again receive an award from the Kentucky Hospital Association, which recognizes our commitment to quality patient care and patient safety,” said Jennifer Nolan, president, Our Lady of Peace. “Our patients are benefitting daily from our programs at Our Lady of Peace. We are thrilled to have our hospital and staff recognized for these efforts.”

This is the third time Our Lady of Peace has received this award. The hospital also received the KHA Quality Award in 2012 and 2014.

Our Lady of Peace is a private, non-profit hospital that offers the most comprehensive array of behavioral health and substance use treatment services in the state. This includes specialized programs and services along the full continuum of care, including inpatient, partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient programming for children, adolescents and adults.
