The former Dillard’s store in the vacant Turfland Mall will become home to University of Kentucky primary care and specialty outpatient clinics. UK HealthCare will be the anchor tenant on the first floor, using some 85 thousand square feet of renovated space.
The man most responsible for building a new hospital at the University of Kentucky says the facility’s ready for its “close up” this weekend. The one-point-two million square foot facility includes two patient-care floors with 128 intensive care and acute care beds. Vice president for Health Affairs Michael Karpf says the new facility is much more adaptable than the old hospital.
