Louisville hospital 'will not entirely follow' Catholic directives

 |  NCR Today

Partners in the proposed University of Louisville merger (including Jewish Hospital and Catholic Health Initiatives) this week explained to the public during a meeting organized by the Louisville Metro Board of Health "how procedures currently banned by the Catholic Church would or would not be performed at a merged University Hospital," according to this report by Louisville radio station WFPL.

Audience members learned that the hospital "will not entirely follow Catholic care directives" if the merger is approved, as well as details on how the hospital would handle a number of reproductive services, according to the report. But critics said they are still looking for clearer answers.
