About Norton Children’s

For more than a century, Norton Children’s Hospital and its predecessor hospitals have cared for the children of Kentucky and Southern Indiana without regard to their families’ ability to pay. Norton Children’s Hospital is Kentucky’s only full-service, free-standing pediatric care facility dedicated exclusively to caring for children and is an advocate for the health and well-being of all children. The 300-bed hospital serves as the primary pediatric teaching facility for the University of Louisville School of Medicine.

As the need for expert pediatric care has grown in our region, so has the footprint of Norton Children’s Hospital and the specialized care we provide. Our medical facilities currently serve more than 170,000 patients each year.
