Expertise for the simplest to more complex medical issues
With our vast network of community and academic physicians, we are able to bring expertise, care and compassion to our patients throughout Kentucky. As a leading academic health system, we’ve attracted specialists from every discipline—seasoned caregivers who have experience with a broad range of complex medical and surgical issues. This means we treat the simplest medical issues with the same level of care and expertise as we do the more complex issues. Not only do we bring our knowledge to our patients, but we collaborate with professionals throughout the country and in some cases the world, ensuring that you have the right treatment options for whatever health issue you may be facing.
What does it mean to be an academic health system?
Through our affiliation with University of Louisville School of Medicine, we are developing future technologies, better processes and more advanced treatments. This means that UofL Health is taking education, research and innovation into our hospitals, clinics and practices. We’re providing our patients the highest possible levels of care by bringing minds from across the system and across the world to work for you.
Research is the academic difference
The hallmark of an academic health system is research. New discoveries, treatments and technology are happening every day right here at UofL Health.
Not only do you have access to the latest care innovations, research and clinical trials, but your providers are directly involved in transforming the future of care and passing knowledge on to the next generation of health care professionals.
Opportunities to participate in clinical research trials
Medical research is vital to finding new and better ways to improve lives, cure diseases and manage ongoing health issues. Our patients may have the opportunity to not only benefit from the research, but to participate in our clinical trials.
As a leader in clinical research, UofL Health conducts a wide array of clinical trials, working with patient volunteers. If a patient chooses to participate in a clinical trial, they could have access to the latest drugs, treatments and technology, and play an important part in helping transform future care for patients everywhere.
