LifePoint Health and Kindred Healthcare Plan Launch of ScionHealth

LifePoint Health and Kindred Healthcare announced plans to create a new healthcare company operating as ScionHealth. The creation of ScionHealth will occur after the closing of the acquisition of Kindred by LifePoint, previously announced in June 2021.  ScionHealth, headquartered in Louisville, KY, will consist of Kindred’s 61 long-term acute care hospitals and 18 of LifePoint’s community hospitals and health systems for a total of 79 hospital campuses across 25 states. Also at the close of the acquisition, the remaining 60+ LifePoint hospitals will combine with Kindred’s rehabilitation and behavioral health locations and be operated by LifePoint. By forming two distinct companies with separate areas of focus, leadership believes “LifePoint Health and ScionHealth can improve access to quality care, create more opportunities for our employees, and invest in our communities.”
