To our friends and patients in NKY:

Not too long ago, you embarked on a journey with us to bring more healthcare options to the Bluegrass. Specifically, you supported us as we fought for the right to build a state-of-the-art Surgery Center at the former Drawbridge Inn site in Fort Mitchell. This center was part of a plan to establish a comprehensive outpatient center with an emergency department, diagnostic and physician services.

As a Certificate of Need (CON) state, Kentucky has a legal review process before permitting the establishment of new healthcare facilities or services in a community. To support us, you sent thousands of letters and made hundreds of calls to your local and state-elected legislators in favor of our Surgery Center.

Unfortunately, St. Elizabeth Healthcare challenged the building of our Surgery Center through the CON process and recently prevailed, preventing us from developing the surgical center.

Just know that we heard you all loud and clear; we read your messages of support on social media; and we appreciated every phone call you made asking what you could do to bring our vision to life. Many of us are Northern Kentuckians too – and so desperately wanted to see another Christ Hospital cupola (that's the big white tower 😉) perched in our backyard.

While this is a major setback in our pursuit to bring a variety of healthcare options to the residents of Northern Kentucky, it doesn't change the fact that we're still here to serve you.

Don't settle. You deserve the best.

When it comes to your healthcare, you don't have to decide between quality and convenience. You still have options. While we're not able to bring additional surgical services to Northern Kentucky right at this time, we do have many convenient locations near you, including those in Burlington, Fort Wright, Fort Mitchell and Wilder. And, don't forget that our main campus in Mt. Auburn, and our Outpatient Center in Anderson are mere miles away.

As Greater Cincinnati's Most Preferred Hospital for 21 consecutive years, we're here to be your healthcare partner now and well into the future. And we're here to keep fighting for ways to bring more healthcare options right to your door.

Convenient care is just a click or call away
