Park Tower at Baptist Health Louisville
Increased patient privacy and comfort are highlights of the new 144-bed Park Tower, Baptist Health Louisville’s eight-story addition overlooking Brown Park.
All patient rooms are private, with handicapped-accessible bathrooms featuring roll-in showers. Rooms are nearly twice the size of current private rooms, providing ample space for needed medical equipment and more elbow room for visitors. Each room also features a window seat which can become a twin-size bed.
Other features help minimize interruptions for patients, including a viewing window with blinds so nurses can observe patients from the hallway. Two rooms on each floor are specially equipped for larger patients.
Outpatient surgery, including recovery, encompasses most of Park Tower's second floor. Patients will register on-site, then relax in the waiting room located just off the Rooftop Garden until they are called back.
Surgical procedures performed will include plastic surgery, general surgery, some orthopedic surgeries, gynecological surgery, and ear, nose and throat surgery (such as ear tubes).
For the convenience of families, waiting rooms on each floor of Park Tower include a kitchenette with refrigerator and microwave. Food and beverages will be for sale in the ground-floor Park Tower Cafe.
Visitors and patients can also enjoy the Rooftop Garden, accessible from the outpatient surgery waiting room, and the Healing Garden.
