Kentucky hospital will not become part of Catholic health system

 |  NCR Today

University of Louisville Hospital in Kentucky will not become part of Catholic health system Catholic Health Initiatives after a controversial three-way merger was rejected last week by Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear, according to the Courier-Journal.

The merger "was assailed by critics because a Catholic health system would have majority ownership of Louisville's public hospital," reports the newspaper. The deal cannot go through without the governor's approval.
