Markey Cancer Center Expansion

The University of Kentucky is in the first stages of developing a stand-alone home for the Markey Cancer Center. The new complex— with an estimated 320,000 square feet for cancer services — will allow for the needed expansion of patient care services and increased ease of access for the UK Markey Cancer Center. As the only National Cancer Institute-designated center in Kentucky, Markey is able to offer cutting-edge and early phase therapies not available to patients being treated anywhere else in Kentucky.

From fiscal year 2015 to 2020, Markey increased its outpatient clinic visits by 34%, including more than 114,000 patient visits in 2020. In addition, cancer-related research funding has increased by 84% since 2012 and totals more than $52.2 million. 

The proposed complex includes space for other advanced ambulatory clinics and structured parking, as well as space for services such as outpatient operating rooms, procedures rooms, diagnostics and imaging services, pharmacy and lab services, and room for meetings and support services.
