The hospital is anchored by two other well-known names in Louisville health care, St. Marys & Elizabeth Hospital, a 331 licensed bed community hospital founded in 1874 by the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth and located in the Louisville’s South End, and Our Lady of Peace, founded in 1951 as one of the nation’s largest private, not-for-profit psychiatric hospitals with 416 licensed beds.

Among its many milestones, Jewish Hospital has received the Consumer Choice Award as the most preferred hospital in Louisville by the National Research Corporation, an independent health care data research company, more than any other hospital in Kentucky.
Many of Jewish Hospital’s clinical programs, affiliated with the University of Louisville School of Medicine, have achieved national rankings for excellence, as well as numerous medical “firsts” in Kentucky, the region, nation and world.
A premier heart hospital in the United States, Jewish Hospital is the site of the world’s first and second implants of the AbioCor Implantable Replacement Heart.
Jewish Hospital is also the only hospital in the country to perform both the totally implantable heart and the totally implantable Left Ventricular Assist System (the LionheartTM).
The Transplant Center – a program of Jewish Hospital and the University of Louisville School of Medicine is in the elite percentage of organ transplant centers in the nation and one of a handful of hospitals performing all five solid organ transplants.
The center was the 12th hospital in the nation to receive Federal Medicare Designation for kidney, liver, lung and heart transplants.
The Jewish Hospital Outpatient Care Center expanded in 2001 to include a new state-of-the-art hand care center. It is the first in the U.S. The center is the site of the world’s first, second and third successful human hand transplants.
In 2003, the next generation of health care arrived in Louisville with Jewish Hospital Medical Center East. With a high tech and patient focusedvision, the facility is designed with the most comprehensive technological enhancements available, distinguishing it from any other outpatient facility.

Also in 2003, the organization began managing the Owensboro Medical Health System Heart Program to improve the care of patients throughout that community.
Another new facility opened in 2006, Jewish Hospital Medical Center South in Bullitt County, an outpatient surgical, diagnostic and comprehensive primary care center with 24-hour emergency services, diagnostic imaging and magnetic resonance imaging services and ambulatory surgical services.
Jewish Hospital and St Mary’s HealthCare continues its rise with a worldclass rehab institute, an $88 million expansion of the Frazier Rehab and Neuroscience Center which will take the facility from five floors to 15.
