More Concern about Catholic Hospital Mergers

Posted Jul 24 2011 12:01pm
As with other mergers in other parts of the country, the Louisville Courier-Journal reports  significant concern that that Catholic doctrine could override patients' end-of-life wishes under a pending merger of three Kentucky hospitals (University Hospital, Jewish Hospital & St. Mary's HealthCare, and St. Joseph Health System).  Catholic Health Initiatives would own 70% of the combined operations, and the merged hospitals will follow Catholic health care directives.
