Saint Joseph East in Lexington Opens New Building for Women’s Services

Saint Joseph East, Lexington, Ky., recently held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for a new, 80,000 square-foot building that is primarily dedicated to women’s services. The new building, which is attached to the existing Saint Joseph East facility, houses the Saint Joseph East Breast Care Center; a women’s boutique that features products for maternity and breast cancer patients; the Center for Weight Loss Surgery; an education center; and several physician offices. “Since acquiring Saint Joseph East in 1998, the success of that facility has been tremendous,” said William Hendrickson, FACHE, president and chief executive officer of Saint Joseph HealthCare. “This new addition will allow us to continue to meet the needs of the rapidly-growing east side of Lexington, as well as the community at large.” For more information, contact Jeff Murphy, director of public relations for Saint Joseph HealthCare, at jmurphy@sjhlex.org.
