Norton Infectious Diseases Institute

Norton Infectious Diseases Institute provides advanced infectious disease care to patients living in Louisville and Southern Indiana. Advanced care solutions provided by this institute include research initiatives to uncover best practices and innovative treatments for a variety of infectious diseases, population health initiatives to reduce the spread of disease and support resources for patients and their families.

  • Our infectious disease specialists are fellowship trained.
  • A multidisciplinary research team has active research initiatives for COVID-19, hepatitis C (hep C), human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and other communicable diseases.
  • We have two convenient locations: Norton Healthcare downtown campus and Norton Brownsboro Hospital campus in northeastern Louisville.
  • Our Norton Complex Care Clinics in Louisville or Southern Indiana are dedicated to treating and curing patients with hepatitis C.
  • We strive to see patients with urgent issues as quickly as possible and offer appointments within 72 hours for patients newly diagnosed with HIV.
  • We offer rapid initiation of antiretroviral therapy (ART). This allows for patients to more quickly reduce viral load, helping to preserve their immune system and ensuring an HIV infection is not spread to others.

Primary areas of focus include:

  • Bone and joint infections
  • Clostridium difficile (C. diff)
