Careers at LifePoint Health
Lifepoint Health Inc (“Lifepoint”) aims to make communities across the US healthier, and to make reliable and effective health care services available to a large portion of the population.
Lifepoint was founded in 1999 as a spin-off from Hospital Corporation of America. The Company, initially operating under the name Lifepoint Hospitals, was established with a portfolio of 23 community hospitals in nine US states.
The Company has since based its business model on the idea that everyone deserves good quality health care close to home and that hospitals create strong communities.
Lifepoint began expanding its reach across the US shortly after its establishment. By 2003, the Company an increased its network of hospitals to 29.
The Company notably merged its operations with Province Healthcare in 2005, which nearly doubled the Company’s network to 50 hospitals across 20 states.
The Company has continued to expand its reach in the US, both through acquisitions and organic growth.
It has also diversified its services to include other health care solutions outside of hospital management.
Lifepoint assumed its current name in 2015 to reflect its evolution from a hospital operator to a health care company that offers a broad spectrum of health services.
The Company merged with RCCH Healthcare Partners in 2018, bringing its portfolio of hospital campuses to 89 in 30 US states.
Lifepoint is one of the largest privately-owned health care companies in the US.
