Announced by the Lane Report, a business outlet covering Kentucky’s business sector, the $1 billion medical campus was announced in late May as part of a partnership between Baptist Health Lexington and the city itself.  Urban County voted its initial approval for the proposed medical complex last month, which will be sited in the Hamburg section of the city.
