Open for Business!!
For everyone that has had a part in the opening of the new
Albert B. Chandler Emergency Department, this week has been a whirlwind!
On Monday we hosted a grand opening press conference featuring
many great speakers including President Lee T. Todd, Dr. Michael Karpf,
Congressman Ben Chandler, Senate President David Williams, Mayor Jim
Newberry and University Health Care Committee Chair Barbara Young. We
had great media coverage, see the links below, and great photos. For Dr.
Roger Humphries and Penne Allison, the time has arrived! This morning
at 5:00am the doors to the public opened. What was once simply a vision
is now a reality and I am honored to be a part of a health system that
is providing world class care to all Kentuckians and beyond.
