Owensboro Health announced Monday the completion of a purchase agreement with Twin Lakes Regional Medical Center (TLRMC) in Leitchfield, Kentucky.
The hospital will be renamed Owensboro Health Twin Lakes Medical Center.
As TLRMC joins the Owensboro Health System, it becomes the third hospital in the health system, as it joins Owensboro Health Regional Hospital and Owensboro Health Muhlenberg Community Hospital.
The addition of Twin Lakes also adds nearly 500 new employees to the Owensboro Health workforce, which now totals nearly 4,800 team members. The agreement also adds more than 20 TLRMC specialists to Owensboro Health Medical Group.
According to Owensboro Health Board Chair Jeff Carpenter, Twin Lakes has a long, distinguished history of serving Grayson County and its surrounding counties, including Breckinridge, Ohio, Butler, Edmonson, Hart, and Hardin counties.
