A fully integrated regional academic health system

with seven hospitals, four medical centers, nearly 200 physician practice locations, and more than 1,000 providers in Louisville and the surrounding counties, including southern Indiana, with additional access to UofL Health through a partnership with Carroll County Memorial Hospital

With more than 12,000 team members – physicians, surgeons, nurses, pharmacists and other highly skilled health care professionals, UofL Health is focused on one mission: to transform the health of communities we serve through compassionate, innovative, patient-centered care.

Expertise for the Simplest to More Complex Medical Issues

With our vast network of community and academic physicians, we are in communities throughout western Kentucky bringing the expertise, care and compassion that is at the core of our mission to every patient we serve.

As a leading academic health system, we’ve attracted specialists from every discipline—seasoned caregivers who have experience with a broad range of complex medical and surgical issues. This means that we treat the simplest medical issues with the same level of care and expertise as we do the more complex issues. Not only do we bring our knowledge to our patients, but we collaborate with professionals throughout the country and in some cases the world, ensuring that you have the right treatment options for whatever health issue you may be facing.

What Does It Mean to Be an Academic Health System?

Taking education, research and innovation into our hospitals, clinics and practices

Patient-Centered Care

Research Is the Academic Difference

Through our affiliation with University of Louisville School of Medicine, we are developing future technologies, better processes and more advanced treatments. We’re providing our patients the highest possible levels of care by bringing minds from across the system and across the world to work for you. The hallmark of an academic health system is research. New discoveries, treatments and technology are happening every day right here at UofL Health. Not only do you have access to the latest care innovations, research and clinical trials, but your providers are directly involved in transforming the future of care and passing knowledge on to the next generation of health care professionals.

Participation in Clinical Research Trials

Medical research is vital to finding new and better ways to improve lives, cure diseases and manage ongoing health issues. Our patients may have the opportunity to not only benefit from the research but to participate in our clinical trials. As a leader in clinical research, UofL Health conducts a wide array of clinical trials, working with patient volunteers. If a patient chooses to participate in a clinical trial, they could have access to the latest drugs, treatments and technology, and play an important part in helping transform future care for patients everywhere.
