The University of Kentucky is committed to serving people of Kentucky. This commitment is realized on a daily basis in the UK Chandler Emergency Department where critically ill or injured patients are brought for life-saving treatment. Inside our emergency department is the only Level 1 trauma center serving Central and Eastern
Kentucky. Our Level 1 trauma center provides the highest level of surgical care to adult and pediatric trauma and time-sensitive emergent patients and has a full range of specialists and equipment available 24 hours a day.
The new UK Chandler Emergency Department, which opened in June 2010, is a state-of-the art facility that is more than two times the size of the former emergency department. It features carefully planned spaces that enable staff to treat and discharge more quickly, or, if the patient needs further treatment, to admit the patient promptly
for inpatient services.
The ED features three separate entrances. Dedicated pediatric, adult and ambulance entrances allow specific and focused reaction to every illness or injury. Each area of focus is self-sufficient, with dedicated supplies and services so care is timely and effective.

The Makenna David Pediatric Emergency Center
is located on the west end of the UK Chandler
Emergency Department. Adjacent to the Adult
Emergency Center, the pediatric center has
a separate entrance and waiting area that is
child-friendly in color scheme and furnishings.
It features a play table, an interactive wall and a
computer play station area.
The adult acute services area is in the center of
the UK Chandler Emergency Department. To
handle heavy demand, the adult area has
32 exam rooms organized in pods to operate as
independent treatment zones. Each zone is
self-sufficient, with dedicated supplies and
services so care is timely and efficient.
The UK Level 1 Trauma Center is located just
beyond the Adult Emergency Center. It includes
three major trauma rooms capable of caring for
up to eight patients based on the complexity
of their treatment needs. Equipped with state-
of-the-art monitoring and life-support systems,
the trauma rooms can handle any life-saving
procedure. The center is immediately adjacent to
dedicated CT technology and general radiology
rooms for efficient diagnostic evaluation.
Express Care is a relatively new approach to
handling emergency patients who are not
critically ill or injured. Patients with less serious
needs for evaluation and treatment will access
this area directly from the adult waiting area.
Express Care will accelerate care for this type
of patient and make the best use of staff and
