Hospital Expansion Project News
Baptist Health Lexington marked the official beginning of its $200 million Nicholasville Road campus expansion project with an October 22, 2010 groundbreaking ceremony.
The expansion project includes a seven-story structure which will house:
- A state-of-the-art cancer center including radiation therapy, a patient-centered chemotherapy/ infusion center, an expanded multidisciplinary oncology clinic, and CyberKnife,
- A women’s center occupying three floors, including labor and delivery, perinatology, antepartum, surgery suites, nursery, NICU and gynecology beds,
- 40 ICU rooms and inpatient imaging services,
- 44 private medical/surgical beds, and
- One floor mechanical. (additional mechanical in basement)
Also included is a five-floor parking structure with two additional floors of medical office space. A new kitchen and cafeteria will be constructed between the 1720 and 1740 building. Construction is expected to be completed within 24 to 30 months.
In addition to providing for expansion of key services, the regeneration project will provide all private patient rooms, address current traffic flow issues and meet an increased need for parking. The new cancer center and the new women’s center will each have customer-friendly exterior access entrances.
A hospital master facility planning process completed earlier this
year concluded that regeneration of the Nicholasville Road campus will provide the most immediate solutions for Baptist Health Lexington’s growing patient population and will best meet the needs of physicians who practice at the hospital.
