LEXINGTON, Ky. – The University of Kentucky’s UK Healthcare unveiled a strategic plan Dec. 14 that calls for up to $680 million in capital investment through 2010 on the campus of its UK Chandler Medical Center. Phase 1A of the plan, to be completed by 2009, calls for a $330 million to $375 million, 200,000 square foot, 240-bed replacement hospital, including a replacement parking garage with about 1,000 spaces. Phase 1A would also include $186 million in new major equipment and information systems, $59 million for program development, $40 million in renovations, a new $20 million ambulatory care facility, and a new student health center. The work is to be funded by operations and bond financing. Phase 1B, to be completed by 2011, calls for new research and education facilities. Phase 2, to be completed by 2016, would include the build out of shelled space in the new patient care facility, the demolition of the existing medical school building and old hospital to prepare that site for a future combined outpatient and inpatient facility, and more research buildings. What’s built during Phase 3 will depend on how healthcare delivery evolves during the coming years. A partnership of Kurt Salmon Associates and Perkins + Will coordinated the facilities master planning process.
