BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -- Med Center Health is expanding.
Construction is well underway of the two-story 48,000 square foot structure acing the 31-W Bypass. When it's done, it will feature a five-level parking garage boasting 833 spaces.
The first floor will be used for Med Center Health services, with the new UK Medical School's Bowling Green campus going on the second floor.
"I think it will transform the medical community here locally," says Med Center Health Executive Vice President Jean Cherry. "It is gonna provide or address the shortage of physicians across the state and the Commonwealth."
Cherry says they are right on schedule to complete the UK College of Medicine July 1st. And later on, if needed, they can add two more floors to the top of the structure.
