The Karpf Auditorium, located in Pavilion A at UK Chandler Hospital, supports UK HealthCare’s commitment to providing the best that medicine has to offer within a healing environment that conveys the unique spirit of Kentucky.
Conveniently located just off the Barnstable Brown Atrium Lobby, the 305-seat auditorium serves as a high-tech education center where physicians and staff can take part in grand rounds and other learning opportunities. It also provides a venue for music and other artistic performances.
