Knox County Hospital

Knox County Hospital

December, 2000

Barbourville, KY

At more than double the area of the facility it is scheduled to replace, the new Knox County Hospital is designed to be a state-of-the-art community hospital, responding to both current and projected needs for a county in rural, south-eastern Kentucky.

With a mandate to be ‘user friendly’, the new hospital is organized as a medical mall with a clear circulation system with obvious entrances and departmental organization.  Easy access to outpatient departments, an open and expansive dining facility, and plentiful waiting and lounge facilities go a long way towards achieving that mandate.  Expanded facilities of note are the enlarged emergency department, an independent rural health clinic, extensive ambulatory surgery facilities, the ‘women’s wing’ with eight patient rooms, including four dedicated LDRP / birthing rooms, and a total of 44 private occupancy patient rooms.

The facility is designed for easy expansion of patient care areas and clinic spaces.  The hospital property includes 20 additional acres of land which has been master planned for medical and health related development.  Ample parking and generously landscaped grounds highlight the new hospital.

Groundbreaking occurred in October 1998 and final completion was December 2000.
