Baptist Health relocates headquarters to Jeffersontown
The health system’s executive leadership team and key departments will now have offices at 1901 Campus Place
Baptist Health is relocating its administrative offices from the Eastpoint Business Center to Jeffersontown.
The health system’s executive leadership team and key departments will now have offices at 1901 Campus Place – a three-story office building Baptist Health purchased in 2020 for its Information Technology team. The IT team moved there in late 2021 following building renovations.
“The newly renovated system services offices at Campus Place have been designed to accommodate our teams’ specific needs with spaces that are suitable and flexible for today's post-pandemic environment,” said Baptist Health CEO Gerard Colman. “We have incorporated new teamwork spaces, networking areas for collaboration and innovation spaces that will allow us to continue to focus on delivering outstanding clinical care to all of the patients we serve today and in the future.”
“Jeffersontown is proud to welcome Baptist Health’s corporate headquarters. Our city offers a vibrant, safe, and growing community conducive to reflecting those qualities inherent within Baptist Health’s culture; therefore, we are thrilled to continue the opportunity to collaborate with such a fine organization,” said Jeffersontown Mayor Carol Pike.
“The Baptist Health system is making important investments in the Jeffersontown community and we are proud to have this prominent healthcare brand as a part of our business community,” added Deana Karem, president and CEO of the Jeffersontown Chamber. “Baptist Health has been a longtime partner of this Chamber and we look forward to supporting its employees and nurturing its regional growth.”
Baptist Health has two Jeffersontown projects in the works.
A 40-bed inpatient rehabilitation hospital, also located near the intersection of Blankenbaker and Bluegrass Parkways, will open soon. The health system is partnering with Encompass Health, the nation’s largest provider of inpatient rehabilitative services, on the freestanding hospital that will serve patients recovering from debilitating illnesses and injuries, including strokes and other neurological disorders, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, amputations and complex orthopedic conditions. In addition to 24 hour nursing care, this hospital will offer physical, occupational and speech therapies to restore functional ability and quality of life. The tentative opening date is summer 2024.
Opening this spring is a hybrid ER and Urgent Care at the corner of Blankenbaker and Bluegrass Parkways. Baptist Health has joined forces with Dallas-based Intuitive Health to bring the first hybrid emergency room and urgent care center to Kentucky, after opening a similar facility in Jeffersonville, Indiana last year. The building’s second floor will house Baptist Health Medical Group offices.
