A New Space for Family Medicine

A New Space for Family Medicine

Thanks to a generous gift, Berea Family Medicine has been redesigned with you in mind.

To provide excellent care, it helps for providers to work in a space designed specifically for the needs of their patients. When it became clear that the outdated layout and atmosphere of Berea Family Medicine, part of KentuckyOne Health, was no longer meeting that standard, Saint Joseph Berea Foundation stepped in to help.

“After hearing our plans for improving the space to better serve our patients and improve efficiency, the Foundation presented us with a gift of $380,000 that made the project possible,” said Nikki L. Cooper, practice manager at Berea Family Medicine.

Thanks to the support of generous donors and fundraisers working through the Foundation, Berea Family Medicine now has a more efficient layout and more room for patients, as well as new hardwood floors, furniture and lighting, and artwork by local artists and photographers.

“It’s amazing how much difference a renovation like this can make,” Cooper said. “Visitors and patients are amazed the moment they step off the elevator. Our office is a warm, inviting environment for care. We’re thankful for the gift that made it possible.”

Vital updates to patient care are made possible by the generous support of community members and businesses. Learn more about the different ways you can help make a difference.
