Jewish Hospital & St. Mary’s HealthCare
Jewish Hospital & St. Mary’s HealthCare (JHSMH) was created when Jewish Hospital HealthCare Services and CARITAS joined in 2005, creating a network of more than 70 facilities in Kentucky and southern Indiana. It provides an array of services from acute and outpatient care to occupational health, psychiatric care, rehabilitation and home health.
Sts. Mary & Elizabeth Hospital was founded in 1874 by the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth at a downtown location. It relocated in 1958 to become south Louisville’s premier community hospital. The sisters opened Our Lady of Peace in 1954 to provide better care to those with mental illness, creating what is now one of the largest psychiatric hospitals in the U.S.
Jewish Hospital was founded in 1905 to welcome Jewish physicians and to provide all patients, regardless of their religious or ethnic background, with the highest quality care. Today, Jewish Hospital is an internationally renowned, high-tech tertiary referral center. It’s noted for many medical “firsts” in the nation and the world.
