St. Joseph East Hospital, Fountain Court Medical Office | Lexington, Kentucky
Established in 1877, Saint Joseph Hospital was founded on the principle of providing compassionate care to the underserved. Nearly 150 years later, this legacy continues as the hospital is expanded, renovated and updated to meet the needs of our community.
JRA Architects collaborated with Saint Joseph East to create a “fit-up” of a medical office building - a transformation of an area to accommodate specific requirements of the tenant - allowing the space to be individually adapted to each department’s needs. For this renovation, new clinical spaces were designed for the first, second, and third floors of the existing building. Specific functions of these new spaces include a new imaging suite with CT, MRI, and ultrasound capabilities, a phlebotomy location to facilitate blood drawing services, and exam spaces. Also included in the newly developed space are diagnostic rooms for the cardiology, rheumatology, and urology departments.
JRA’s transformation of the medical office building into a more flexible space allows Saint Joseph East Hospital to continue offering even better services to Lexington and the surrounding communities.
