ASHLAND, KY – To accommodate the need for additional on-campus physician office space, King’s Daughters Medical Center (KDMC) recently began a new construction project to build two additional floors to the top of Medical Plaza Building B, 617 23rd St., Ashland. The building currently is four floors high, and can go as high as 10 floors if demand warrants it.
The two-floor addition will add 40,000 square feet of much-needed medical office space. The demand for physician office space adjacent to King’s Daughters has skyrocketed in the past several years. As more patients come to King’s Daughters from up to 150 miles away for tests and treatments, physicians find it helps their practice to have their office close to the region’s premier medical center.
Construction equipment now blocks Bath Avenue between 22nd and 23rd Streets, adjacent to Medical Plaza B and the Heart and Vascular Center, and it will remain so for nine to 12 months. Valet parking services and access to the main entrance to Medical Plazas A and B and the Outpatient Surgery Center (23rd Street) will not be affected during construction.
King’s Daughters Medical Center is a locally controlled, not-for-profit, 385-bed regional referral center, offering comprehensive cardiac, medical, surgical, maternity, bariatric, pediatric, rehabilitative, psychiatric, cancer, neurological, pain care, wound care and home care services. With approximately 3,600 employees, KDMC is the largest employer west of Charleston and east of Lexington.
