Norton Children’s Heart Institute

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

About 1 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 are living long lives, our adult congenital heart disease (ACHD) program provides specialized care over a lifetime.

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 receive comprehensive, integrated care right in the heart of Louisville. Even if you don’t live near Louisville, Norton Children’s has outreach offices 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.

National Collaborations and Registries

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

Norton Children’s Heart Institute also collaborates with the largest children’s hospitals in the country through the National Pediatric Cardiology-Quality Improvement Collaborative (NPC-QIC) to improve outcomes and quality of life for newborns with single-ventricle heart defects, as well as the Pediatric Cardiac Critical Care Consortium (PC4) to improve quality of care for critically ill pediatric and congenital heart disease patients.

We Treat All Heart Conditions in Children

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