There’s a mysterious battle going on between the University of Louisville and Norton Healthcare. And the Governor just released this interesting statement:
“I met Wednesday night with University of Louisville President Jim Ramsey and Norton Healthcare CEO Steve Williams. The meeting occurred at my request because of my increasing concerns about the ongoing dispute between these two critically important institutions. Few health issues are more important in Kentucky than accessible, high-quality trauma care. I wanted to hear from both leaders that they share that priority. I was pleased to receive assurances from both Dr. Ramsey and Mr. Williams about their commitment in that regard. It was not – and is not – my desire to take sides in this dispute. The issues here are complex and both sides have strong, sincere points of view. But the people of this state expect, and deserve, Level 1 trauma care. They need to know that our leaders are committed to that goal. I appreciate the fact that both Dr. Ramsey and Mr. Williams are committed to the principle that this level of care will remain intact.”
What are you thoughts? Somebody needs to shed some light on this situation.
