Representatives from University of Louisville Hospital will appear before the Metro Council’s Health and Human Needs Committee on Wednesday, May 5th to update the current status of indigent care and the QCCT Partnership.
“This is an important meeting as U of L lets us know how many indigent are being cared for in Metro Louisville,” says Councilwoman Vicki Aubrey Welch (D-13) who chairs the Committee. “The Quality Care Charity Trust (QCCT) is a partnership between Metro and State governments with U of L in the area of funding.. As the Council moves closer to budget hearings, I am sure there will be many funding questions in light of national health care reform.”
Jim Taylor, CEO of University Hospital and Ken Marshall, COO of University Hospital will appear before the Committee. The men are also expected to update Committee members on U of L’s recent national recognitions in areas such as the new Level 1 Trauma Center and the National Breast Cancer Center at Brown Cancer Center.
The Committee meets at 4:00pm in Council Chambers, Historic City Hall, 601 West Jefferson Street.
The meeting will be broadcast live on Metro TV, Insight Cable Channel 25. It will also be web streamed live. Simply go to the Metro Council’s Home page at www.louisvilleky.gov/metrocouncil. Click on the “Watch Meetings Online” icon
