Hospital files lawsuit over public records request

 |  NCR Today

University of Louisville Hospital has filed a lawsuit against The Courier-Journal, the ACLU and WHAS-TV in response to the organizations' request that it turn over public records, The Courier-Journal reports.

The hospital's designation -- as a public or private entity -- is at the heart of the lawsuit, which, the newspaper says, could affect a proposed merger with Jewish Hospital & St. Mary's HealthCare and St. Joseph Health System in Lexington, Ky.

The planned merger would give St. Joseph Health System, a subsidiary of the health system Catholic Health Initiatives, majority ownership in University of Louisville Hospital.
