University Of Kentucky In Court To Gain Control Of Local Hospital

A Lexington hospital may soon change hands.

A report in the Lexington Herald-Leader says a hearing this afternoon could seal the deal for the University of Kentucky to take over Samaritan Hospital.

A U.S. bankruptcy judge gave tentative approval to the 13-million dollar deal yesterday.

If the agreement is approved, U.K. could take over operation of the facility tomorrow.

    UK cannot control it's own hospital and provides the worst service in any hospital in Kentucky, why should they be allowed to take control of a good hospital that provides excellent service? Too much competition for UK, I guess. What better way to end it than to buy it out! UK is already too big for its britches!! I hate that hospital and will go anywhere else, but there from now on!

    I pray the Samaritan Hospital is not closed. I ended up there for an emergency twice and the treatment I received was quick and much better than I expected. The doctors on staff or available on call were excellent.
