Patient and Consumer Health Resources

This page is dedicated to assisting patients, their Partners In Care and hospital visitors find helpful health care-related resources. We encourage all clinical and non-clinical staff to share these resources with their patients while in the hospital.

The following resources are free to everyone. New resources are added frequently, so please remember to check our site regularly. 

Medline Plus

One of the very best resources for patient health information is Medline Plus. Patients can learn about treatments, look up medications, use the dictionary, find the latest research on a condition, and link to thousands of clinical trials. Easy-to-understand information, videos, and tutorials on over 900 diseases and conditions can be found in both English and Spanish.  


  • Consumer Links (an A-Z list of consumer resources and websites)

  • Patients Like Me (a patient powered research network that allows people to connect with others who have the same disease or condition and track and share their own experiences)

These services are available to you as part of an agreement between KentuckyOne Health and University of Louisville’s Kornhauser Health Sciences Library.
