Dr. Scottie Day

Welcome from Scottie B. Day, MD, FAAP

Welcome to University of Kentucky Department of Pediatrics. Located on the beautiful University of Kentucky campus near downtown Lexington, the Kentucky Children's Hospital and Department of Pediatrics have provided service and education from the opening of the UK College of Medicine in 1961.

As the Chair, I am honored to follow in the footsteps of the previous leadership of Jack Githens, Warren Wheeler, Jacqueline Noonan, Vipul Mankad, Heinrich Werner, Tim Bricker and Carmel Wallace. All of whom helped grow the reputation of UK Pediatrics. A state-of-the-art Children's Hospital facility opened in 1997. We are now in the process of a comprehensive renovation program which will include new pediatric, cardiac, and neonatal intensive care facilities; new housestaff support areas; updated research laboratories; and other facilities on campus.
