LEXINGTON, Ky. (Oct. 17, 2022) — The new UK HealthCare Fountain Court Primary and Urgent Care clinics open today in Lexington.

UK HealthCare is focusing on increasing health care access across the community and making care more convenient for patients. Located near Hamburg, the new UK HealthCare Fountain Court Primary Care clinic will be staffed with three providers with plans to expand, serving about 35 patients per day, which increases access to primary care medicine to the entire family — newborns, children and adults. This location is taking new patients. 

The Fountain Court Urgent Care clinic will have two providers and will be able to see roughly 42 patients a day. Established UK HealthCare patients will have same-day urgent care scheduling, allowing patients to reserve a time for the visit through the UK HealthCare MyChart patient portal. To prevent long waits, this clinic also offers walk-in patients an appointment time upon arrival, giving a clear idea of when you can expect to be seen.

"Making health care more accessible, especially for patients in Central and Eastern Kentucky is our key goal," said Mark F. Newman, M.D., executive vice president for health affairs at UK HealthCare. "Part of our new strategic plan includes not only providing more health care options, but ensuring that this increased health care access is also more convenient for patients. Our Fountain Court facility is the perfect location to open these new clinics, which are supporting our increased growth in outpatient services."

Randy Jones, M.D., is the current medical director of the facility.

“There is clearly a need for both primary care and urgent care in the area,” Jones said. “This clinic will provide many patients and their families access to high quality, comprehensive medical care, delivered by some of the most trusted health care providers in the state.”

Both UK HealthCare Fountain Court Primary Care and Fountain Court Urgent Care open today, Oct. 17. Primary Care will be open 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Friday and Urgent Care will be open 8 a.m.-7:30 p.m. Monday-Friday and 8 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday. Patients can make an appointment using the MyChart app or by calling 859-218-2626.
