New facility offers in-person or virtual care, same-day appointments
Norton Healthcare has opened a combined neuroscience and primary care office to serve Nelson and surrounding counties in Kentucky.
The 5,000-square-foot facility, located at Shoppes of Bardstown, 106 W. John Rowan Blvd., offers in-person and virtual visits, as well as same-day appointments for specific conditions. Norton Healthcare invested $950,000 in the building and medical equipment.
“As the demand for advanced medical care in Bardstown continues to grow, Norton Healthcare wants to meet the needs of this community,” said Joseph M. Flynn, D.O., MPH, FACP, chief administrative officer, Norton Medical Group, and physician-in-chief, Norton Cancer Institute. “We look forward to offering greater access for local patients and their families.”
The neuroscience practice opened in April, replacing a facility at 201 S. Fifth St. in Bardstown. Jill M. Blandford, D.O., neurologist with Norton Neuroscience Institute, and a nurse practitioner offer treatment for general neurological and neuromuscular conditions, as well as diagnostic testing and lab draws. Duane W. Densler, M.D., neurosurgeon with Norton Neuroscience Institute, provides general neurosurgery and spine surgery consultations in the office.
“We’ve seen a significant need for more access to neurologic treatment in Bardstown,” Dr. Blandford said. “By opening this new facility and expanding services, we’ll be able to treat far more patients and help them access new levels of care close to home.”
The primary care portion of the office opened in June. Lacey Jurich, APRN, is available to see patients ages 12 and older for preventive and sick care. The office also provides laboratory and radiology services.
“Our mission is to provide quality health care for all we serve,” Lacey said. “I’m eager to grow with this community — the best small town in America — and help patients with their health needs.”
