Eastern State Hospital is located in Lexington, Kentucky and replaces the states oldest state managed psychiatric hospital. The main building is a 273,000 SF, three story building located on a 28.85 acre site at the University of Kentucky Coldstream Farm. The project includes four Personal Care Homes at 12,616 SF each that provide transitional care from the hospital that assist patients' acclimation into the community.
The new Campus includes 168 adult psych beds, 25 forensic beds, 25 geriatric (GERO) beds, 12 acquired brain injury beds and 48 personal care home beds. This Certified LEED Silver project was designed in conjunction with the SmithGroup.
The project was designed and constructed using Collaborative BIM, where the architects, engineers and contractors all work together on a detailed model of the building.
