Portions of Hospital Drive between the Ben Roach Building and UK Chander Hospital Pavilion H will close Monday, April 23, at 10 a.m. to allow for construction of improvements to our facilities. This area is expected to remain closed until late spring 2019. Access to Markey Cancer Center parking and to Chandler Hospital will remain open, but drivers are asked to allow extra time and to use caution in the area.
Patient golf cart shuttles from UK Markey Cancer Center to UK Chandler Hospital will be replaced by shuttle buses during this closure. Patients who use these shuttles can ask for assistance at any information desk.
Access to the employee drop-off area between Chandler Hospital and the Kentucky Clinic Building will also remain open, but delays are likely. Employees should allow extra time or choose an alternate drop-off location.

Construction for new linear accelerator and computed tomography vaults in Markey Cancer Center's Ben F. Roach building began April 5 and will last approximately a year.
Initial changes will include temporary roads for access to Rose Street, Hospital Drive, and Pavilions A and H. A fence will enclose construction activities and will close down a portion of Hospital Drive in front of the Roach building (Pavilion CC). Pedestrian access to Roach and Pavilion H will be modified and no access permitted inside the construction site.
Additional shuttles will be added to provide access from the Markey Cancer Center to Pavilions A and H.
Patients and visitors going to Pavilion A (the new building), H, HA and G may walk across the concourse bridge, located at Level C of the Chandler Hospital Parking Garage, or take the free shuttle from Level A of the garage. Golf carts are available for those who find the walk difficult. The golf cart shuttles have two areas: between the concourse bridge and Pavilion A (1) as well as shuttling patients from Pavilion H to the Whitney-Hendrickson building (2).
Markey Cancer Center patients going to Pavilion CC, WH or the Combs building for outpatient services may park in the lot next to the Whitney-Hendrickson Building. If spots are not available, parking is available in the parking garage on Transcript Avenue (see inpatient parking above).
