KentuckyOne Health--the state's largest healthcare system--has announced its first major investment of the $325 million it promised to spend after its creation. “This is the first down payment on that commitment,” said Dr. Dan Varga, the group's Chief Clinical Officer. Kentucky One Health was formed this year in the merger of Saint Mary’s and Saint Joseph Health Systems and Jewish Hospital. The group will continue its focus on cardiac care in the state after announcing a $30 million investment in its Heart and Vascular Institute over the next three years that will expand programs and equipment for cardiac services.
