Livingston Regional Hospital will soon be under a new ownership group.
Current owner, HighPoint Health System, made that announcement on Oct. 26. After HighPoint’s planned acquisition of Louisville-based Kindred Healthcare is complete, LRH, along with 18 other of LifePoint’s hospitals and healthcare facilities, will become part of a new company, ScionHealth.
David Cox, Director of Physicians Relations and Recruitment at LRH, said the hospital is looking forward to the change.
“Our team is excited about the hospital’s future as part of ScionHealth, which will focus on the operations and sustained growth of facilities like Livingston that have unique operating models,” Cox said. “As part of ScionHealth, Livingston will benefit from highly tailored plans for growth, clinician recruitment and service line development.”
