As the leading cardiovascular care provider in Louisville and Southern Indiana, Norton Heart & Vascular Institute provides comprehensive treatment for heart and vascular conditions.

Our board-certified and fellowship-trained specialists have the skill and equipment to pinpoint your diagnosis and tailor a treatment plan that may be as simple as medication and lifestyle changes.

If your condition requires it, our specialists are at the leading edge of minimally invasive procedures to restore blood flow around your heart, as well as complex open-heart surgeries to get you back to living your life.

Our specialists have significant experience and expertise treating a full range of cardiovascular conditions.

The Society of Thoracic Surgeons ranks Norton Heart & Vascular Institute at the top of adult heart programs in Kentucky and Indiana.

The expertise of our physicians  prompted the American College of Cardiology to accredit all four Norton Healthcare adult hospitals as Chest Pain Centers. The ACC  also accredited our electrophysiology program. The American Heart Association recognized us with their Mission: Lifeline award.

Norton Heart & Vascular Institute has received national accreditation for its Chest Pain Center and Atrial Fibrillation Center of Excellence, as well as for noninvasive vascular cardiology, minimally invasive cardiology and cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation.
