About the Division of Adolescent Medicine, Kentucky Children’s Hospital at the University of Kentucky, Lexington, Kentucky, United States (pp. 193-195) $0.00

Abstract:
The Kentucky Children's Hospital is the only facility in central and eastern Kentucky
dedicated to the expert medical and surgical care of infants, children and adolescents. The
University of Kentucky (UK) has a proud and distinguished history of providing
comprehensive programs and innovative care to the children of the region. Although patients
are referred from every county of the Commonwealth of Kentucky and from every adjacent
state, the majority of patients are from the Bluegrass region around Lexington and from
Appalachian counties in the eastern part of Kentucky. The Department of Pediatrics has
provided service and education from the opening of UK College of Medicine in 1961.
The passion for teaching is palpable at the Kentucky Children's Hospital. Most years
about 15% of our graduates or more choose to train in pediatrics. The University of Kentucky
had one of the earliest combined Internal Medicine-Pediatrics residency program with ―medpeds‖
graduates very well represented throughout the faculty. This, in addition to a strong
adolescent medicine program, is among factors which have led to a focus upon adolescent
and adult graduates of pediatric care from Kentucky Children‘s Hospital.
The approach at the Kentucky Children's Hospital (KCH) is focused on family-centered
care. Full-time child life coverage, facilities for families to stay with children overnight, ageappropriate
playrooms, children's library facilities, in-hospital school services, a dedicated
television channel, a computer laboratory and many other features provide the special
environment to provide the best of care for children. The Kentucky Children's Hospital
includes a 12-bed Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, a 66 bed Level 3 Neonatal Intensive Care
Unit, 44 acute care pediatric beds, a 26 bed normal newborn nursery, and an 8 bed short stay
admissions/observation unit. KCH has grown from about 3,750 discharges per year in 2004 to
about 5,400 in 2009.
