care for the patients in the areas we serve,” said Charlie Powell,
president, KentuckyOne Health Medical Group. “With MedSynergies taking
on these important back office functions, we’re able to focus more on
our mission and meeting today’s healthcare industry challenges while
remaining focused on delivering high-quality patient care.”
In establishing the service center, 150 KentuckyOne Health employees
will transition to MedSynergies beginning this summer. These employees
currently reside in a service center dedicated to KentuckyOne Health
physician services. As part of this transition, the employees will move
to a new MedSynergies facility located at 401 South Fourth St.,
Louisville, KY 40202. In addition to the service center employees, the
new facility will house more than 30 employees dedicated to CHIPS.

sector and the heart of that activity is downtown,” said Louisville
Mayor Greg Fischer. “It’s great to add more than 150 employees downtown
and to see MedSynergies moving closer to the healthcare clients they are
helping support and grow.”
As a company that specializes in providing physician services,

and analytics, human resources and patient outreach, among other
functions through this service center and CHIPS. By establishing
standardization and best practices in these areas, KentuckyOne Health

our clients and to have room for our business and our employees to grow
while providing the quality service KentuckyOne Health’s employed
physicians and patients expect.”
MedSynergies will occupy floors 16 and 17 of the 26-story downtown
office. The company expects to open the service center in mid-July
following the design and development of the office space.
“We are delighted that MedSynergies has decided to open a new location
in downtown Louisville. This company represents the kind of talent
attraction and investment that adds significantly to the region’s
economic development and quality of life,” said Daryl Snyder,
vice-president, economic development, Greater Louisville Inc. “The
professional jobs the company offers mesh well with the important
services they bring to the healthcare community. This is a win on every
