As of Oct. 1, Norton Children’s Medical Group has assumed operations of Open Arms Children’s Health, a service of Home of the Innocents. Norton Children’s now provides general medical, audiology and psychiatric care on-site at the downtown Louisville campus.
Norton Children’s Medical Group – NuLu provides general medical services, while the audiology clinic and psychiatry services will be part of Norton Children’s ENT & Audiology and Norton Children’s Behavioral & Mental Health.
All medical care in this location will help to serve children in foster care and families who struggle with access to quality health care in the area. With many services located under one roof, patients easily can receive treatment for a variety of needs in the same building.
This partnership allows Home of the Innocents to remain focused on its mission of enriching the lives of children and families with hope, health and happiness through behavioral health services and pediatric long-term care. Norton Children’s will complement that with improved access to quality medical care.
“Providing quality health care to the children of our community is a privilege for Norton Children’s,” said Jennifer C. Evans, M.D., MPH, system vice president, pediatric services, for Norton Healthcare. “We look forward to caring for children in our new location on the Home of the Innocents campus. It is an honor to build on the tradition established by the Home in serving children and families who need special care.”
After 10 years, Home of the Innocents is proud to bring in successful, well-respected partners who will expand services to more children in the community and continue to provide care to those served by the organization.
