It’s a New Day for Healthcare in Western Kentucky
We’re so pleased to announce that on September 21, 2018, Methodist
Hospital and Deaconess
formed an affiliation that will transform healthcare for patients throughout western Kentucky.
This affiliation is built on a shared vision that will improve access
to high quality services, enhance efficiency for our patients and yield
a healthier, brighter future for the communities we serve.
Healthcare is changing at a rapid pace, making it very difficult for small
healthcare systems like ours to thrive without support from the community
around us. This affiliation seeks to ensure the long-term viability of
the Hospital as we continue to provide the same Methodist Hospital brand
of medicine to the communities we serve — built on the principles
of exceptional care, compassion and communication. Patients in our service
area of Henderson, Union and Webster counties will now have improved access
to the high-quality services they need to achieve lifelong health. This
new affiliation will help us fulfill our promise to patients: the promise
of comprehensive healthcare, close to home.
Our vision is to work with Deaconess and others to build and position Methodist
Hospital as a comprehensive healthcare delivery system to meet the needs
and exceed the expectations of our patients. This affiliation will allow
Methodist Hospital to remain independent and under local control, but
the support of Deaconess will help us make this vision a reality as we
further our mission of providing safe, compassionate, high-quality and
cost-effective services to address the mental, spiritual and physical
needs of the people in the communities we serve.
