Med Center Health engaged SHA to design a ground-up facility to accommodate the University of Kentucky’s College of Medicine Bowling Green Campus, a Parking Garage and to provide shell space for future hospital growth.
The Health Education Complex provides educational and training spaces to support the four-year UK College of Medicine Program. This is the first of three satellite sites for the College of Medicine and is an outreach program which targets communities with strong pre-existing Healthcare and Academic institutions which serve as the springboard for recruiting and training future physicians.
The Health Education Complex design locates the Student Lounge and Administrative Offices on the northern façade to take advantage of natural light in key spaces. Training spaces include Standardize Patient Exam Rooms to simulate an actual physician office environment as well as Simulation Rooms with high-fidelity healthcare mannequins for Adult, Obstetrics and Pediatric inpatient care. Interior finishes include terrazzo floors, aluminum column surrounds, and strong university branding to provide a contemporary and inviting environment.
