Norton Children’s provides specialized care for some of our smallest patients in two neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) locations.

Level IV NICU: Norton Children’s Hospital (Downtown Louisville)

The Level IV NICU at Norton Children’s Hospital provides the highest level of care. Newborns from around the region come to the Norton Children’s Hospital NICU for specialized care. Many babies are transported to the NICU by the “Just for Kids” Transport Team.

As a Level IV NICU, the hospital is home to a full range of pediatric medical and surgical subspecialists and pediatric anesthesiologists. Norton Children’s Hospital also provides outreach education to Level I, II and III nurseries throughout Kentucky and Southern Indiana.

The pediatric surgeons and other providers at Norton Children’s Hospital repair complex birth defects and acquired conditions. We also offer ECMO (extracorporeal membrane oxygenation) heart-lung bypass.
