Norton Healthcare to open $70M hospital in underserved community

Louisville, Ky.-based Norton Healthcare is investing $70 million to build a new hospital in West Louisville, the area's first in over 100 years.

The investment includes $7 million to purchase the land for the 40,000-to-60,000-square-foot hospital, according to a news release shared with Becker's.

The hospital will have adult and pediatric primary care physician offices, emergency room services, and inpatient and outpatient care. It will also include imaging services and specialty services for women's health, cardiology, neurology and endocrinology.

It will add about 100 jobs with an average salary of $60,000, according to the release.

The project is part of a $100 million investment with Goodwill Industries and Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear to bring an "opportunity campus" to West Louisville, which includes Goodwill's headquarters operation, career services, local social service agencies and Norton Healthcare's hospital.

The hospital is expected to be completed in 18 to 24 months.
