The University of Louisville (UofL) Hospital, its flagship facility, will receive a US$144 million investment from the university for renovation and growth.
By replacing all of the hospital's private rooms, the development of a new hospital tower in downtown Louisville will increase the facility's capacity.
The hospital will have more than 360 private rooms, 20 operating rooms, and a 24-bed observation unit following the expansion.
With a renovated lobby and waiting room, the expansion project will improve the visitor experience. Updates will also be made to the coffee shop and gift shop.
About 325 additional posts, including nurse positions and clinical and non-clinical support, would be added to the hospital.
The tower's construction is anticipated to start this spring and be finished by the beginning of 2024.
