Merit Health Systems is a private hospital management company which acquires, owns and operates urban community hospitals. Based in Louisville, Kentucky, Merit was founded specifically to address the significant and growing needs of community hospitals in larger urban markets.
The mission of Merit is to meet the needs of all of the people living in the communities we serve and ensure them access to quality health care.
In order to meet these needs we examine the level, scope and quality of health care services provided by our hospitals in their respective markets. Our goal is to integrate the highest standards of ethics, quality and processes that result in state-of-the-art and patient-friendly hospitals tailored to the unique needs of each local community.
Merit's commitment to its communities is evident in how our hospitals are operated: from developing and expanding programs to achieving the highest level of quality right down to how Merit functions as an owner. We recognize that health care is locally driven and our operating style reflects this through our unique programs. Learn more about who Merit is.
