Saint Joseph Health System

HQ: Lexington, KY   |  
Saint Joseph Hospital, a 446-bed tertiary medical center, offers the highest quality patient care to the community of Central and Eastern Kentucky. Also known as Lexington's "heart hospital", Saint Joseph has pioneered many firsts in the health care community. Saint Joseph has also been nationally recognized for treatment in the areas of cardiology, orthopedics and stroke, by Solucient and U.S. News and World Report.

On October 2, 1877, a small group of Sisters of Charity of Nazareth, Kentucky, led by Sister Euphrasia Stafford, arrived in Lexington to staff the city's first hospital. In just a few months, the decision was made to move from the Linden Walk/Maxwell Street location to West Second Street, where Saint Joseph Hospital remained open until moving again in 1959 to its current location on Harrodsburg Road. Today, Saint Joseph Hospital is a member of Catholic Health Initiatives.

Saint Joseph's Associates, physicians and volunteers are empowered to carry out the health care ministry started by the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth. Our hospital's friends and benefactors continue to be remembered daily in prayer and service by the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth.
The mission of Saint Joseph HealthCare and Catholic Health Initiatives is to nurture the healing ministry of the Church by bringing it new life, energy and viability in the 21st century. Fidelity to the Gospel urges us to emphasize human dignity and social justice as we move toward the creation of healthier communities.

Our vision is to live out our mission by transforming healthcare delivery and by creating new ministries for the promotion of healthy communities.

Saint Joseph HealthCare is a faith-based family united in our unwavering commitment to patient centered care. Our destiny is to grow our healing ministry as a national quality leader.
