LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Patients with unique specialty needs can now lean on the UofL Health – UofL Hospital – Multi-Specialty Clinic as their one-stop-shop for care. The $1.3 million investment not only increases access and focus for patients in need of a particular specialist but also validates UofL Health’s commitment to providing optimum care across a range of unique services.

Located in the Chestnut Street Outpatient Center, the hospital-based Multi-Specialty Clinic will house specialty services for:

Patients will now have a dedicated, multidisciplinary team to care for their individual and unique needs when it comes to medications, nutrition, resource access and case management. The clinic houses a team of dedicated pharmacists, a registered dietitian and a social worker in addition to the team of sub-specialty doctors, advanced practice providers and other staff supporting patient care.

“This newly renovated space is set up specifically with these patients in mind. It is designed as a one-stop shop so that patients with very specific medical needs and medications can have all the people and resources they need in one place,” said Jason Smith, M.D., Chief Medical Officer, UofL Health. “This ensures they are taking their medications correctly and safely, they are getting the proper nutritional education and that their overall care is coordinated.”

All of the equipment has been upgraded and is ergonomically designed for patients who may need extra space to maneuver a powered wheelchair. It also includes a hydrotherapy suite for burn patients and brings the addition of a bone health clinic to UofL Health for the treatment of bone diseases like osteoporosis.

Most of the patients who will see the specialists in this new location are on a specialty medication. This requires close monitoring to ensure patient safety. The team of pharmacists will now be able to offer more in-person and telehealth appointments.

“From a pharmacy perspective, this clinic provides greater access for patients who require specialty mediation injections. Here they have access to a pharmacist to educate them on their mediations to enhance safety and help optimize their care,” said Bob Fink, Pharm.D., System Vice President for UofL Health – Pharmacy Services. “It’s in direct correlation with UofL Health’s mission to transform the communities we serve with innovative and patient-centered care.”
