King's Daughters is pleased to announce that construction is underway on a new emergency department and imaging facility, opening in 2025!

With an estimated cost of $100 million, the emergency and imaging departments will improve King’s Daughters ability to provide timely, efficient, and effective care; and support a more vibrant, healthier Ashland.

Improved Access to Care

Because of an increase in emergency care visits over the last several years, it was vital that King's Daughters develop a facility that would help us better care for our patients and their families.

Care teams will be able to diagnose and treat emergency needs with improved access to crucial diagnostics, such as CT scanners, EKGs, and laboratory services.

The emergency department and imaging facility will include:

  • More than 75 exam rooms and/or treatment spaces, including rooms designed for treating patient specialty care needs
  • Separate, covered ambulance entrance with triage bays
  • Separate entrance for patients being brought in by law enforcement officers
  • Private behavioral health patient entrances and treatment areas
  • Dedicated work area for EMS and law enforcement officers to complete documentation
  • New hospital main entrance
  • New lobby to connect ED, Medical Plaza A & B, Outpatient Surgery, and Patient Tower 2

What You Can Expect

Coming to our campus will look a bit different over the course of this project. We want to make sure your visit, whether as a patient or loved one, is as stress-free as possible.
