Norton West Louisville Hospital is more than just a health care facility; it is a symbol of hope, healing and community collaboration. Currently, construction crews are installing flooring and lighting, with hospital equipment and decor soon to follow.

The community recently received a sneak peek of the hospital as the building continues to take shape at 28th Street and Broadway. The 86,500 square-foot facility, located on the Norton Healthcare Goodwill Opportunity Campus, is designed to meet the unique needs of the West Louisville community.

“We made a promise to our community that we were going to build an innovative Norton Healthcare facility in West Louisville, and here we stand,” said Corenza Townsend, chief administrative officer of Norton West Louisville Hospital.

As the first hospital built west of Ninth Street in over 150 years, the state-of-the-art facility aims to improve the health and well-being of the West Louisville community for generations to come.

A welcoming entrance

Upon entering the hospital, visitors are greeted by a centralized check-in area with an abundance of natural lighting, creating an inviting and warm atmosphere that sets the tone for the hospital’s commitment to patient-centered care in the community.

First floor features

The hospital’s first floor includes a variety of amenities, such as a kitchen and bistro that offers refreshments and snacks for patients and visitors. Nearby, patients will find a Norton Medical Group office that will house specialties including primary care, women’s services, pediatrics, orthopedics and other services. An on-site retail pharmacy will provide a convenient one-stop shop for various health care needs.

The hospital actively sought community feedback over the past two years, which inspired a community room. This versatile space is equipped with A/V capabilities, TV monitors and plenty of seating to host community meetings, events or seminars on topics such as finances or nutrition. A chapel can be found nearby.

Additionally, the emergency department, located on the north end of the building, features private patient rooms to help enhance patient comfort and privacy, with the hospital’s imaging and lab services nearby.

A community effort

From the hospital’s inception, Norton Healthcare incorporated community feedback, ensuring the final design reflects the needs and desires of the West Louisville community. To further promote diversity on the jobsite, Norton Healthcare partnered with the Louisville Urban League and general contractor Harmon/Messer to provide jobs to women and minorities through the Urban Workforce Development Initiative.

“We’ve done things differently here. We’ve engaged people differently here,” Corenza said. “To see the love this facility is getting, to see people come together to make sure that our kids and our kids’ kids are healthier. We need each other, and to take care of our health — that’s why we’re here.”

Norton West Louisville Hospital is scheduled to open in November.
