Lifepoint Health is a healthcare delivery network that consists of 62 community hospital campuses and more than 50 rehabilitation and behavioural health hospitals, along with more than 200 other sites of care.

The company employs more than 50,000 colleagues in total.

In December 2021, it acquired speciality hospital company Kindred Healthcare for an undisclosed amount.

The deal increased Lifepoint’s network to 65 community hospital campuses and more than 30 rehabilitation and behavioural health hospitals across 29 US states.

When closing the deal, Lifepoint also launched ScionHealth, a national health system that combines acute and post-acute hospitals.
