Hardin Memorial Health (HMH) announced the intent to acquire Meade County Primary Care from KentuckyOne Health Medical Group. The practice will remain open and continue to serve its more than 9,000 patients in what HMH and KentuckyOne Health officials say will be a seamless transition with the same staff at the same location.
The two primary care physicians, four Advanced Practice Registered Nurses and 16 support staff will all become HMH employees. The practice will remain in the same location and HMH will assume ownership of the practice and the lease on the building on November 1.
KentuckyOne Health approached HMH about acquiring the practice because Meade County is a part of HMH’s primary service area.
“Given HMH’s well-established presence in Meade County and Central Kentucky, they were the logical choice,” said KentuckyOne Health Medical Group President Charles Powell. “Working closely with the Meade County physicians, the leadership team of Hardin Memorial and Meade County Judge/Executive Gerry Lynn will create a smooth transition and provide patients no disruption in their care.”
Jeanetta Bosley, M.D. who has been at the practice for more than 20 years expressed her enthusiasm about the news.
“We have always worked well with HMH,” said Bosley. “Many of our patients already use HMH services, which are conveniently located here.”
HMH Brandenburg Diagnostics offers MRIs, CT scans, routine X-rays and ultrasound. Last year, HMH added physical therapy services at the 100 Commerce Drive location. One of HMH’s Ear Nose and Throat specialists also sees patients there.
HMH Medical Group Vice President Jeff Kingery said adding these caring providers to our team will help HMH do even more for the people of Meade County.
“We are excited to have this successful practice join the HMH family,” said Kingery. “HMH can now bring even more specialty care to the residents of Meade County.”
HMH Foundation board member Diane Medley called the acquisition exciting for her hometown and for HMH.
“It is great to see HMH further expand in Meade County,” said Medley. “People want advanced care close to home and that is what HMH can offer.”
Kingery added that HMH has contracts with the same insurance providers as KentuckyOne Health.
