Initial site work begins on new home for UofL Physicians pediatric practices

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- On July 18, the University of Louisville Foundation began construction on a new, 170,000-square-foot pediatric medical office building. The building will house all of the UofL Physicians pediatric specialty clinical practices, with a large general pediatrics location on the ground floor. The eight-story building will have seven clinical floors, plus a lab, pharmacy and radiology services, as well as a rooftop garden and conference area.

The new building is adjacent to the UofL Physicians Outpatient Center, located at 401 E. Chestnut St.

Planning for the building began in January 2015 and Architectural firms GBBN, Stanley, Beaman & Sears and Messer Construction Co. have been engaged since June 2015.

“This will be the premier pediatrics care building for children in the state of Kentucky,” said Dr. Gerard Rabalais, chair of the UofL Department of Pediatrics. “This will allow parents easy access to pediatrics specialists and primary care providers in one location, with everything designed specifically for children and their families. It is our intent that through this new facility, we will be building the future of pediatric care for years to come.”













Construction fences for the new Pediatric Medical Office Building are up. This is an exciting start to the two-year project, which will build the future of pediatric care at UofL Physicians. 

The new pediatric building will be adjacent to the UofL Physicians Outpatient Center, located at 401 E. Chestnut St.

Here is a look at how the construction will currently affect access to the UofL Physicians Outpatient Center:

  • The parking lot off Preston St., between the UofL Physicians Outpatient Center and the Dental School Building, will be permanently closed. Additional handicapped parking is now available in the Chestnut Street Parking Garage, 414 E. Chestnut St., on each floor near the elevators.
  • The sidewalk and parking on Preston Street alongside the construction site and UofL Physicians Outpatient Center will be closed.
  • The main entrance will be open throughout the construction project.
  • The back entry door located near the main conference rooms and Campus Health will be closed and become an emergency exit only.
  • The Patient Drop Off area, side walk and entry will remain open. At times these may be temporarily closed but only for very short periods.
