Second Hospital Merger Forum Is Tonight

A second public forum will be held tonight on the pending hospital merger between University of Louisville Hospital, Jewish Hospital and Catholic Health Initiatives.

The merger will limit some reproductive services offered at University Hospital, and that has raised concerns among many patients.

The forum is organized by the African American Think Tank and will be held at the African American Heritage Museum at 5:30. It’s meant to gather reactions and questions about the merger from west and southwest Louisville.

A spokesman says University of Louisville officials appreciate being invited to the forum, but school and hospital official will not attend.

Representatives from U of L, CHI and Jewish Hospital spoke at a Board of Health forum yesterday.
