Saint Joseph Hospital is a 433-bed facility located in Lexington, Kentucky. Founded in 1877, a small group of Sisters of Charity of Nazareth in Kentucky, led by Sister Euphrasia Stafford, began their health ministry. Their mission was to provide compassionate care to the poor and underserved – a tradition still carried out today. Saint Joseph Hospital primarily serves central and eastern Kentucky with a full range of services, including distinguished awards for cardiology, orthopedics and stroke care.
Saint Joseph Hospital and Saint Joseph East have earned Platinum Recognition for their efforts to increase organ, eye and tissue donor registrations across Kentucky through the Workplace Partnership for Life (WPFL) Hospital Organ Donation Campaign.
