The hospital is one of several founding facilities to join new national system, ScionHealth
Logan Regional Medical Center is now part of Scion Health, a new company that launched Thursday, December 23 following the finalization of LifePoint Health’s transaction with Kindred Healthcare.
According to a press release from Logan Regional, ScionHealth operates 79 acute and post-acute care hospitals in twenty-five states from its headquarters in Louisville, Ky. Previously announced last fall, the new health system’s founding facilities include 61 long-term acute care hospitals from Kindred Healthcare and eighteen of LifePoint Health’s community hospitals.
“We are delighted to officially join ScionHealth,” said David Brash, chief executive officer of Logan Regional Medical Center. “Being a founding facility for a new health system is exciting, and our team looks forward to having more targeted resources and collaboration opportunities that will help us to serve our patients and communities in new ways. While becoming part of a new health system is a change for us, our community can be assured that our focus remains on providing exceptional care to our patients as well as being a great place to work.”
Logan Regional’s news release further stated that the transition to ScioHealth will be seamless for patients, providers and employees. There will be no changes in the hospital’s day-to-day operations. The hospital’s leadership team and name will remain the same.
“I am excited to welcome Logan Regional Medical Center to ScionHealth,” said Rob Jay, chief executive officer of ScionHealth. “Our team looks forward to advancing innovative healthcare solutions, partnering with the community and being a stron employer in Logan County. We are eager to work with Logan Regional Medical Center’s leaders, employees and physicians to explore new ways that we can improve the health of people across Logan County and the surrounding areas.”
ScionHealth has approximately 22,000 employees working across community hospitals, long-term hospitals, outpatient centers, sub-acute units, and behavioral health locations.
