Hardin Memorial Health announced Wednesday intent to acquire Meade County Primary Care from KentuckyOne Health Medical Group in November.
The practice will remain open and continue to serve its more than 9,000 patients. The health group plans to use the same staff at the location for what its news release called a seamless transition.
The two primary care physicians, four advanced practice registered nurses and 16 support staff will become HMH employees. Hardin Memorial will assume ownership of the practice and the lease on the building Nov. 1.
KentuckyOne Health approached Hardin Memorial about acquiring the practice because Meade County is a part of the hospital’s primary service area.
“Given HMH’s well-established presence in Meade County and central Kentucky, they were the logical choice,” KentuckyOne Health Medical Group President Charles Powell said in the release.
Jeanetta Bosley, M.D. who has been at the practice for more than 20 years, said she is excited about the move.
“We have always worked well with HMH,” Bosley said. “Many of our patients already use HMH services, which are conveniently located here.”
HMH Brandenburg Diagnostics offers MRIs, CT scans, routine X-rays and ultrasounds. Last year, Hardin Memorial added physical therapy services at the Commerce Drive location. One of the hospital’s ear, nose and throat specialists also sees patients there.
HMH Medical Group Vice President Jeff Kingery said the move will provide more care for Meade County residents.
“We are excited to have this successful practice join the HMH family,” said Kingery in the release. “HMH can now bring even more specialty care to the residents of Meade County.”
Kingery said Hardin Memorial has contracts with the same insurance providers as KentuckyOne Health.
