The Lexington market’s top healthcare stakeholders have been moving toward consolidation. The merger between Dignity Health and Catholic Health Initiatives formed CommonSpirit Health on a national level. It also resulted in a rebrand of one of the market’s top health systems: KentuckyOne Health has become CHI Saint Joseph Health System. Centene and WellCare’s merger was approved in Kentucky, which will strengthen WellCare’s market position as one of the top providers of managed Medicaid enrollment. Despite the high level of consolidation, integration advancements flounder. CHI Saint Joseph Health System shuttered its specialty pharmacy, and Baptist Health ended its health plan. However, CHI Saint Joseph will likely push new value-based care arrangements and may re-enter the specialty pharmacy business under its new parent health system.
