New West Louisville hospital offers patients better access to healthcare – and hope

When Regina-Riley Smith has a doctor’s appointment, it usually means having to take the entire day off from work. In order to make it to her appointment on time, she has to leave 45 minutes early to drive from her home in West Louisville’s Shawnee neighborhood to her primary care physician’s office on North Hurstbourne Parkway. By the time she returns home, hours have passed.

Opportunity Requires Staying Healthy and Feeling Better

Services at the new hospital will include adult and pediatric care, emergency department services, inpatient care and outpatient treatment and diagnostic imaging.

This hospital will be unlike any other medical facility in West Louisville. The new Norton Healthcare hospital will create approximately 100 new jobs in West Louisville with an average salary of $60,000.

Russell F. Cox, Norton Healthcare president and CEO, answers questions about his vision for the new hospital.

Building West Louisville’s Hospital

There should be no limits to health care, and every person should have the opportunity to live a healthy life. We are meeting people where they are because it’s the right thing to do.
