University of Louisville Hospital West Tower

Louisville, KY

“…UofL Health’s flagship downtown campus.”


The University of Louisville Health’s Hospital West Tower addition will provide a new entrance and critically needed spaces for UofL Health’s flagship downtown campus. The 68 private patient rooms will be complemented with a 24-bed observation unit that will relieve emergency room overcrowding and allow better care for all levels of patients.


Four state-of-the-art operating suites and 30 post-anesthesia care beds will be added. The hybrid operating room will combine traditional operating functionality with advanced imaging equipment for real-time surgical guidance and assessment during complex procedures.


Patient floor design focuses on patient and visitor comfort, offering flexible and adaptive spaces. Enlarged technology-enabled nurse stations, enlarged doctor’s dictation spaces, and convenient consult rooms afford faculty and medical students an optimal environment for teaching and learning.
