Hospitals at which University of Louisville Med-Peds Residents work and learn.

Med-Peds residents spend the majority of their inpatient time at one of our four main teaching hospitals: University Hospital, VA Medical Center, Jewish Hospital, and Norton Children's Hospital. There are several outpatient facilities as well.

Norton Children's Hospital

Norton Children's Hospital is Kentucky's only full-service, free-standing pediatric care facility dedicated exclusively to caring for children and is an advocate for the health and well-being of all children. The 267-bed hospital serves as the primary pediatric teaching facility for the University of Louisville School of Medicine and is a level one trauma center. There is a 26 bed Pediatric ICU with a robust cardiovascular surgery program as well as a newly opened Transitional Care Unit. The  state-of-the-art 101-bed neonatal intensive care unit includes ECMO (artificial lung) capabilities as well as pediatric cardiac, bone marrow and kidney transplant programs. The emergency department has the region's only trauma center for children. Med-Peds residents work with hospitalists, subspecialists, and emergency medicine specialists to become proficient in the complete care of ill children. The non-medical services, such as pediatric surgery and its subspecialties, pediatric radiology, anesthesiology, and psychiatry all lead to enhanced learning.
