Biography

UK Alumni, Lacey Buckler, works every day to help patients heal.

My name is Lacey Buckler; I am one of the chief nursing executives at UK HealthCare and I have oversight for cardiovascular nursing services, advanced practices and strategic outreach.

I chose nursing because I have a passion for taking care of others and seeing the happiness on a patient's face when they get to leave. Providing great care is very rewarding. The most fulfilling part of my job is seeing patients get better.
