Sts. Mary & Elizabeth Hospital Update

I have received the following from CM Doug Hawkins' office regarding the condition of STS. Mary & Elizabeth Hospital in Southwest Louisville:

Flooding rains last week caused the Emergency Department at Sts. Mary & Elizabeth Hospital to remain closed until further notice. Damage to the infrastructure was substantial, including mechanical systems, electrical systems, phone systems and boilers/chillers. (To put it into perspective, the influx of water moved the fifty-year old boilers weighing over 10 tons off their foundation.)

Progress continues to be made at Sts. Mary & Elizabeth Hospital where additional services continue to reopen. The hospital’s main goal is reopening the emergency department, along with the laboratory and radiology departments this week.

Now open:
Physician Offices
SMEH Surgery Center (outpatient surgery) 502-366-9525
Diabetes Education Center at SMEH Plaza I, Suite 202B. – need to have a referral
Sleep Center 502-554-3537 (temporary number)
Wound Healing Center 502-439-7275 (temporary number)
Frazier Rehab Institute at SMEH 502-439-9585 (temporary number)

Opening on Tuesday, August 11:
SMEH Women’s Center at 11 a.m.

Areas that remain closed at this time:
Emergency Department
Hospital inpatient beds
