Norton Women’s & Children’s Hospital, St. Matthews
In August 2011, Norton Healthcare announced plans to convert Norton Suburban Hospital into a state-of-the-art, full-service facility focused on the unique health care needs of women and children.
The new Norton Women’s & Children’s Hospital will feature a family-centered care environment offering an advanced approach to women’s and children’s health care practices. The renowned care available at Norton Children’s Hospital will be available on the St. Matthews campus.
Expanded pediatric care at the new hospital will help increase the critical care capacity of Norton Children’s Hospital and improve the community’s access to the expertise of Norton Children’s Hospital’s physicians and health care professionals. As part of this expansion of pediatric services, opened in January 2012, the Pediatric Surgery Center offers a wide range of surgical procedures. The outpatient surgery center includes four pediatric operating rooms offering specially pediatric trained staffed.
Construction completed in spring 2014 and the new hospital will includes a 14-bed pediatric emergency department, a pediatric inpatient unit and a redesigned 40-bed neonatal intensive care unit.
Outpatient surgical procedures are performed at Norton Children’s Hospital, Norton Children’s Medical Center and the Pediatric Surgery Center at Norton Women’s & Children’s Hospital.
