Norton Children’s Heart Institute

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

The board-certified and fellowship-trained pediatric cardiologists and pediatric heart surgeons at Norton Children’s Heart Institute, affiliated with the UofL School of Medicine, provide comprehensive children’s cardiology care 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 physicians, pediatric heart surgeons and subspecialists at Norton Children’s Heart Institute provide significant expertise and experience caring 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

Comprehensive, integrated care is provided at Norton Children’s Hospital, and outreach offices throughout Kentucky and Southern Indiana make it easier for your child to receive the heart care they need.

Norton Telehealth services allow patients and families to get follow-up care with their heart care specialist from home through a video connection.

National Collaborations and Registries

In recognition of its expertise in serving adults with congenital heart disease, Norton Children’s Heart Institute earned accreditation from the Adult Congenital Heart Association. This national organization is focused on connecting patients, family members and health care providers. This community of support and a network of experts is committed to advancing and standardizing the quality of care for patients with adult congenital heart disease.

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 cardiology 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.
