University of Louisville Hospital: Leading the Way in Research, Education and Quality of Care
Today, our writer Dan Tepe shares with you just some of the many benefits we all receive by having an acclaimed teaching hospital right here in our region.
University of Louisville Hospital is one of only two academic medical centers, also known as teaching hospitals, in Kentucky. The other is University of Kentucky in Lexington.
The physicians that practice at University of Louisville Hospital and the James Graham Brown Cancer Center are professors at the University of Louisville School of Medicine. The nurses and physicians that practice here are active participants in leading-edge research to develop the best solutions for patient care.
In addition to teaching in the classroom and treating patients, they guide residents in their training in becoming the next generation of medical leaders.
But what are the benefits for our patients?
- Improved quality of care
- New and unique treatments not available at other hospitals
- State-of-the-art technologies
- Multidisciplinary teams that combine many specialty areas to provide comprehensive levels of care
These qualities fulfill our mission to be a community resource that benefits patients in Louisville, the region and the entire state of Kentucky.
