Med Center Health to Break Ground on High Street Tower at Bowling Green Campus on June 13

Med Center Health will break ground on High Street Tower, a new five-story patient care tower at its Bowling Green campus on Thursday, June 13th at 11:00 a.m. The groundbreaking ceremony, hosted by Med Center Health and the Bowling Green Area Chamber of Commerce, will be held at the green space adjacent to The Medical Center’s Emergency Department parking lot (High Street and E. 4th Avenue).

High Street Tower will provide a new location for Women & Children’s Services at Med Center Health, which includes one of the largest obstetrics units in Kentucky. Two floors will feature expanded space for ante-partum, labor and delivery, cesarean suites, post-partum, and an emergency department dedicated solely to obstetrical patients. The Women & Children’s Services space will also house the region’s only Level III neonatal intensive care unit (NICU).

Other floors will allow for future expansion of the emergency department, surgery, endoscopy, and additional medical and surgical beds.

“The new tower will offer an amazing environment for our mothers and babies while also creating space to serve the future healthcare needs of our growing communities for years to come,” said Connie Smith, President and CEO of Med Center Health. “This project will enable Med Center Health to continue offering the most advanced care and services in Southcentral Kentucky.”

High Street Tower will be built steps away from the former location of High Street School, an important part of Bowling Green’s local history. Smith also noted the project is scheduled for completion in the summer of 2026 which will mark the 100th Anniversary of Med Center Health, dating back to City Hospital’s origins on hospital hill.
