A new medical facility will open in Louisville’s downtown arena next week.

The KFC Yum Center officially opens Sunday, and on Monday, Norton Healthcare’s immediate care center inside the building will begin operations. Director of immediate care centers Anna Newkirk says it will keep regular daily hours and will be accessible, even during arena events.

“Patients can take a bus, walk or come with a car just a few blocks,” she says. “There are lots of parking garages around us. Our patients will have some dedicated spaces in the garage under the arena.”

Newkirk says the center will not necessarily be open during all arena events, but Norton will run the arena’s first aid stations.
