LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) – KentuckyOne Health has laid off some top executives in a move officials said in an internal announcement is an effort to improve efficiency and continue focusing on patient care.
The Courier-Journal reports (http://cjky.it/2ck4kJC) that the health system, a division of Catholic Health Initiatives, made the layoffs Friday. Among the layoffs are Dr. Damian “Pat” Alagia and Michael Spine, two senior vice presidents, and Randy Napier, president of Frazier Rehab Institute.
Spokesman David McArthur called the moves a “series of system-level and facility leader transitions.”
KentuckyOne was formed by the merger of Jewish Hospital & St. Mary’s HealthCare and St. Joseph Health System of Lexington in 2012. In 2014, it announced it was laying off 500 employees in Kentucky. Its Denver-based parent lost $125 million in the last quarter of 2015.
