St. Claire Medical Pavilion
The new $28 million St. Claire Medical Pavilion, a three story, 81,000-square-feet facility, is ultimately a consolidation of St. Claire HealthCare's (SCH) Cave Run Surgical Specialists and Morehead Medical Specialists, and UK Women’s HealthCare Morehead. Our community will benefit greatly from the consolidation of St. Claire HealthCare's services into a single campus, making it easier and more convenient for patients to transition from physician offices and outpatient support services in the Medical Pavilion to diagnostic care in the main hospital. St. Claire broke ground on the new Medical Pavilion on Monday, May 2, 2016.
The new Medical Pavilion will bring many of SCH's professional services together under one roof. The community will benefit greatly from the consolidation of services into a single campus, making it easier and more convenient for patients to transition from physician offices and outpatient support services in the Medical Pavilion to diagnostic care in the main hospital. Providers will also benefit from the renovation, as it will enable them to quickly travel between their personal offices and the hospital as needed. Additionally, the new Medical Pavilion will allow SCH to make more efficient use of shared exam rooms, offices and support spaces.
Located on SCH's main campus, the Medical Pavilion will include the following services:
- General/Vascular Surgery
- Medical Oncology
- Oncology Infusion Center
- Pain Management
- Palliative Medicine
- Physical Therapy
- Primary Care
- Radiology/Laboratory Services
- Telemedicine Center
- UK Women’s Healthcare
The Old Second Street Access Road will separate the Medical Pavilion from the main hospital. The design includes an elevated pedway connector from the second floor of the existing hospital to an upper floor of the Medical Pavilion. An exterior canopy will provide a covered drop-off for visitors to the facility, and an additional entry will allow direct access from the adjoining surface parking lot.
The Medical Pavilion will contain outpatient services, classifying it as a business occupancy. The actual structure will be a steel-framed building with a flat roof and three stories, all above ground. The exterior will be comprised of a combination of glass curtain walls, metal panels and masonry wall construction, with a membrane roof.
The location of the Medical Pavilion will be at the corner of SCH's campus near the intersection of Flemingsburg Road and West Second Street — prominent thoroughfares used by the local community and the students at nearby Morehead State University. As SCH’s campus building closest to the street, the Pavilion will be highly visible and present the most prominent facades to passersby.
