Bellarmine University and Norton Healthcare announced plans that will expand their partnerships in sports medicine, campus wellness and nursing. This new 5-year, $2.4 million partnership will ensure the health of the campus community while also expanding and diversifying the regional workforce.
This is the largest partnership in Bellarmine’s history.
“I want to thank the Norton Healthcare Board of Trustees for their transformational support of our students over the past two decades and look forward to continuing our partnership for years to come,” said Bellarmine’s president, Dr. Susan M. Donovan. “Together, we are preparing outstanding students to be the great leaders that our future workforce demands.”
“We have had a great partnership with Bellarmine University over the years. We are excited to do more great things together to support not only students and student athletes but those who are working toward careers in healthcare,” said Norton Healthcare President and CEO Russell F. Cox.

Norton Healthcare’s partnership with Bellarmine dates to 2002 and the university’s first cohort of Lansing Scholars, whose costs are partially covered by the Norton Healthcare Foundation and who begin their careers at Norton Healthcare upon graduation, where they are eligible to have their loans forgiven.
In July 2009, Norton Healthcare and Bellarmine formed a collaborative nursing venture to further address the community’s healthcare workforce needs. In 2013, that partnership was renewed and a second focus—sports medicine—was added. In 2016, Bellarmine and Norton Healthcare added strategic ventures related to campus wellness.
