About Us

Jewish Heart Care and the Jewish Hospital Heart & Lung Institute set the standard for heart care. Pioneering a number of medical firsts, including the state’s first adult heart transplant and the world’s first and second AbioCor™ Implantable Artificial Heart surgeries, the hospital is recognized as a leader in providing the latest medical technology, especially in heart care. 

Jewish Hospital and CARITAS Health Services merged in 2005 to create Jewish Hospital & St. Mary’s HealthCare (JHSMH), a regional health care network that offers a full continuum of care to its patients. The network boasts 71 facilities and more than 1,900 patient beds throughout Kentucky and southern Indiana, and offers the only full service transplant center within the state of Kentucky.

When it’s your heart, minutes matter. That’s why JHSMH offers seven Emergency Department locations throughout Kentuckiana. Jewish Hospital’s downtown location is also one of only 14 hospitals in Kentucky to be an Accredited Chest Pain Center (link to Accredited Chest Pain page).

Focusing on advanced heart care, the Heart & Lung Institute at Jewish Hospital is dedicated to offering the latest advances in cardiac care through research and education. The Institute is at the forefront in developing new technology and training physicians from around the world in leading-edge techniques.

From emergency services to rehabilitation to groundbreaking research, JHSMH offers a full continuum of heart care unmatched in the region.
