Norton Healthcare continues to build on its promise to bring accessible health care to central Kentucky with the opening of a new multi-practice location in Elizabethtown.
The offices in the Towne Center shopping center at 157 Towne Drive, feature approximately 25,000 square feet of space and 39 exam rooms, adding diagnostic imaging services to expanded practices that include Norton Community Medical Associates primary care and endocrinology, Norton Neuroscience Institute, Norton Immediate Care Center and lab testing all at one location. These services will move from their original spaces at 2410 Ring Road and begin seeing patients in their new spaces on Oct. 23.
“Having access to proper health care is a foundation on which communities are built,” said Steven T. Hester, M.D., MBA, senior vice president and chief clinical and strategy officer, Norton Healthcare. “Norton Healthcare is committed to bringing quality care to families in Hardin County. We believe this space, and all that it now provides, is a great step toward building that for generations to come.”
New diagnostic imaging services include MRI scans, CT scans, ultrasounds, bone density tests, mammograms and X-rays. These imaging capabilities will make it easier for patients to receive care without driving to Louisville. Furthermore, it allows providers to review results quicker.
Same-day appointments are available at the new Elizabethtown location.
“It’s so important for us to be in this community, because people should be able to receive the care they need right here in E-town,” said Varun Samji, M.D., endocrinologist, Norton Community Medical Associates. “Expanding what we’re able to do, while cutting down drive time for patients, is an important aspect of what it means to provide quality care.”
The facility’s central location within Elizabethtown also allows for an easier commute for current patients in Hardin and surrounding counties, as well as for future patients looking for a convenient place to receive comprehensive care.
Norton Heart & Vascular Institute will remain at 2410 Ring Road. Plans are in place to expand cardiology and vascular services at that location, with details to be released in the coming months. Norton Orthopedic Institute will also be coming to 2410 Ring Road, filling the vacated space.
Several Norton Children’s Medical Group specialty services will also come to 2410 Ring Road. Meanwhile, a Norton Children’s Medical Group pediatrician office will continue to serve Elizabethtown at 1301 Ring Road, and also has plans to expand its facility.
