(R)EVOLUTION - Kennedy Health Joins Jefferson Health

Leaders from Kennedy Health and Jefferson Ink Final Merger Deal

Stephen Klasko, MD, MBA, President and CEO of Thomas Jefferson University and Jefferson Health, and Joseph W. Devine, President and CEO of Kennedy Health, joined Jefferson board members for a ceremonial signing to celebrate the official merger of the two organizations, culminating a process formally begun in January of 2016.

Unlike an acquisition, this partnership builds on Jefferson’s innovative hub-and-hub model, where Kennedy Health will serve as the southern New Jersey core of Jefferson Health. South Jersey residents will receive care from the same trusted physicians, nurses and staff, but also have access to advanced clinical services and promising clinical trials available at Jefferson.
