UK HealthCare provides the highest quality patient care available. But just like other success stories at the University of Kentucky, great achievement comes from having a great team and with UK's more than 160 outreach and affiliate sites, teamwork is helping tackle some of Kentucky's and the nation's toughest health problems.

More students than ever want to "see blue." at the University of Kentucky, and those record-setting numbers are adding to UK's momentum.

This coming year, the University of Kentucky will celebrate 150 years as the state's flagship, land-grant institution of higher education. We're celebrating that fact, but placing even more focus on how we plan for an even brighter future.

As Kentucky's flagship, land-grant institution, one of UK's most important missions is addressing the state's most pressing challenges. UK is leading a multiyear, multimillion dollar research effort to attack obesity, which plagues too many Kentuckians.

The health problems we confront are complex. Overcoming those challenges takes a team approach. The University of Kentucky is a national leader in taking a multidimensional approach to your most serious health problems.

A year after earning a coveted National Cancer Institute Cancer Center designation, the University of Kentucky Markey Cancer Center is enjoying its success of the past while working toward its next goal — NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center status.

You probably will notice lots of construction cranes on the UK campus. That's because more than $1 billion in construction is taking place at the University of Kentucky — all of it focused on making this campus one of the handful of thriving residential research universities in America.
