Norton Children’s Heart Institute

At the heart of every child is a champion. A champion deserves children’s heart doctors dedicated to providing a team approach to care at a children’s heart center.

About one in 110 babies is born with a heart defect in the U.S., according to the American Academy of Pediatrics. At Norton Children’s Heart Institute, affiliated with the UofL School of Medicine, you will find pediatric cardiologists and pediatric heart surgeons who provide comprehensive services from before birth through teenage years and adulthood. Since more children with congenital heart conditions live long lives, our adult congenital heart disease (ACHD) program provides specialized care.

With a legacy as a leading children’s heart center, children and families are at the core of our mission. You can expect Norton Children’s Heart Institute to be your child’s heart care partner for life.

Collaborating with the UofL School of Medicine for Your Child’s Care

The providers with Norton Children’s Heart Institute offer high-quality pediatric heart care for your child. Our physicians, pediatric heart surgeons and subspecialists provide significant expertise and care for all types of heart conditions in children, from the simplest to the most complex.

Our doctors are professors and active researchers helping to advance medical care in the 21st century through clinical research and education. Norton Children’s Hospital serves as the primary pediatric teaching facility for the University of Louisville School of Medicine.

The Norton Children’s Difference

Our board-certified, fellowship-trained pediatric cardiologists, heart surgeons and professional staff provide compassionate care to diagnose and treat children with congenital heart defects, heart failure and acquired heart conditions.

Your child will have comprehensive, integrated care right in the heart of Louisville. Even if you don’t live near Louisville, Norton Children’s has a wide reach throughout Kentucky and Southern Indiana, making it easier for your child to receive the heart care they need.

Our recent expansion of Norton Telehealth services makes it easier for patients to get follow-up care with their heart care specialist from home through a video connection.

Norton Children’s Heart Institute is part of the Advanced Cardiac Therapies Improving Outcomes Network (ACTION). The ACTION learning network shares data among the nation’s leading children’s heart centers to improve patient outcomes. The network is focused on improving outcomes for patients with heart failure and developing guidelines for children with pediatric ventricular assist devices (VADs).

Whether your child’s heart condition is discovered before birth, after birth or as they grow, we can help.
