Eastern State Psychiatric Hospital strives to provide excellent medical healthcare that instills hope, inspires recovery, and improves overall well-being for Kentuckians. Our team, in partnership with SmithGroup, designed a new, state-of-the-art facility to replace the existing 100-year-old psychiatric hospital. The program and design adopts clinically proven modalities of care for this special population. Great design detail is extended throughout the environment of care, with attention to abundant levels of natural light, visual control for patient supervision, patient safety, outdoor living, color, and texture.
The main 273,000 sq. ft., three-story building is located on a 28.85 acre site at the University of Kentucky Coldstream Farm. The new campus includes 168 adult psychiatric beds, 25 forensic beds, 25 geriatric beds, 12 acquired brain injury beds, and 48 personal care home beds. The project also includes three Personal Care Homes of 12,616 sq. ft. each.
The facility is designed to LEED Silver Certification and is operated by the University of Kentucky.
