University of Kentucky Hospital / Surgery Suite


Scope: Architect of Record

Project Size: 441,000 SF/Expansion

State of the art technology and planning for future expansion were top priorities for the UK's Medical Center surgery suite. The space includes eight general operating rooms, one hybrid operating room, 38 prep/recovery rooms, and ample space for surgical support and supply.

The Design Team worked closely with the stakeholders including surgeons, nurses, and surgical staff to ensure space layout could provide the best and safest care possible. Full-scale mock-up rooms were constructed for the General Operating Rooms and the Hybrid Room/Control Room. All outlets, devices, and equipment were evaluated with representation from all stakeholders. Minor modifications and adjustments to the design were able to be identified prior to construction in order to minimize cost and schedule impact.

In collaboration AECOM (formerly Ellerbe Becket).
