University of Louisville Pediatric Medical Office Building

Louisville, KY

University of Louisville had a desire to consolidate multiple doctors offices and departments into a single location. They wanted to create an iconic building for premiere pediatric care. Messer was chosen due to our strength, experience, and success with past projects in medical facilities as well as our experience with University of Louisville.

It includes a pediatric ambulatory care center with specialties in general pediatrics, audiology, ENT, cardiology, psychology, physical therapy, radiology, telemedicine, phlebotomy, infusion, and sports medicine.
