LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – It has been narrowed down to two locations for the new Veterans Hospital in Louisville. The downtown location and land next to the current V-A Hospital on Zorn Avenue have both been ruled out as options.
This leaves two options: a brand new hospital built at Brownsboro Road and the Watterson Expressway or one built off Factory Lane near the Ford plant in eastern Jefferson County.
In 2006 it was announced that Louisville would get a new Veteran’s Hospital and since then there has been plenty of debate about where it should be built. Most veterans agreed that they did not want it located downtown.
