Events & Calendar: Topping Out

September 30, 2009
UK HealthCare family celebrated “Topping Out” of the new UK Chandler Hospital by placing a beam on the highest point of the building.

September 30, 2009, marked an important milestone in the construction of the new UK Albert B. Chandler Hospital. We reached the highest point of the building’s 12 stories. It was an accomplishment that deserved a celebration - see video of ceremony below.

But reaching the high point of construction was not the only reason to celebrate. This project employed hundreds of construction workers, 34 contractors and 30 architectural, engineering and planning firms and has provided a much needed boost to our local economy.

“ The new facility will help us improve the health of our citizens, grow our economy, provide new jobs and boost UK’s bid for Top 20 research status.” 

– Lexington Mayor Jim Newberry, September 30, 2009
