Norton Children's Hospital

For more than 116 years, Norton Children's Hospital and its predecessor hospitals have provided children of Kentucky and Southern Indiana the best health care available without regard to their families' ability to pay. Norton Children's Hospital is Kentucky's only free-standing, full-service pediatric care facility dedicated exclusively to caring for children. The 263-bed hospital serves as the primary pediatric teaching facility for the University of Louisville School of Medicine. In 2007 Norton Children's Hospital was recognized for excellence in nursing care with a Magnet designation from the American Nurses Credentialing Center. Norton Children's Hospital is the only magnet designated hospital in the city and one of only 20 children's hospitals recognized in the country.
