Norton Healthcare Prevention and Wellness

The Norton Healthcare Prevention & Wellness team offers health screenings and education to help you stay healthy. Screenings are important as they can detect early signs and symptoms of disease or monitor your current health. Many of the services are offered at low cost or no cost.

The nurse practitioners, registered nurses, certified mammography technologists and others on the Norton Healthcare Prevention & Wellness team provide preventive health screenings throughout Louisville and Southern Indiana.

Norton Healthcare Mobile Prevention Center

The Norton Healthcare Mobile Prevention Center connects people to wellness, with health screenings at multiple locations every week in Louisville and the surrounding  area, and serves women age 40 and over with or without health insurance.

Screening mammograms and annual wellness exams often are covered by insurance. Funding may be available for Kentucky and Southern Indiana residents who don’t have insurance.

Tobacco Cessation

No-cost group classes are available. Each group class consists of eight sessions in seven weeks, each lasting approximately one hour. Classes are available at locations around Louisville and Southern Indiana.
