UofL Health and elected officials broke ground Wednesday on a $60 million project to expand its Bullitt County operations into UofL Health – South Hospital.
The facility will be a full-service acute care hospital with 40 inpatient beds, more providers, enhanced emergency capabilities, an intensive care unit, cardiac/vascular lab, increase surgical and outpatient services, plus more than 100 new jobs.
Bullitt County is Kentucky’s 10th largest county and the largest without its own inpatient hospital.
“A full-service hospital at this location, with inpatient beds, has been talked about for nearly two decades,” said Tom Miller, UofL Health CEO. “Now, under the ownership of UofL Health, we are proud to make it happen. UofL Health-South Hospital is committed to this community, building a facility to meet the health needs of today and into the future.”
The hospital is expected to be completed in Spring 2023.
