UK HealthCare plans to lease and renovate the former Dillard’s location at Turfland Mall on Harrodsburg Road for consolidation and relocation of some of its primary care and specialty outpatient clinics, according to an announcement today at a press conference.

UK HealthCare will be the anchor tenant for the first floor of the building utilizing approximately 85,000 square feet, officials said. The clinic will consolidate patient services of UK Family & Community Medicine, which currently sees patients at both the Kentucky Clinic on the UK campus, and at Kentucky Clinic South, located on Harrodsburg Road.

“Today’s announcement is about convenient access to quality patient care in our community,” said University of Kentucky President Dr. Eli Capilouto in a release. “Of equal value is the redevelopment and revitalization of this area through this project.”

In addition to Family and Community Medicine, patient services relocating to the new site will include the UK Orthopedics & Sports Medicine clinic currently located at Perimeter Drive, and UK Occupational Medicine & Environmental Health and the UK Travel Medicine clinic, both currently located at Kentucky Clinic South. Other outpatient clinics and services may also be relocated in the future.
