Norton Women's Care

Making a Differnce for Norton Women's Care

When women in our community need medical care, whether for delivering a baby, having a mammogram or treating another women's issue, the majority turn to Norton Women's Care. You can help the Norton Healthcare Foundation make a difference for the women in our community by supporting projects for Norton Women's Care.

Projects currently underway are funding the NICU Family Center at Norton Suburban Hospital and for renovation of the obstetrical unit at Norton Hospital.

Make an on-line donation today or call (502) 629-8060.

Project aims to help NICU Family Center at Norton Suburban Hospital

Norton Women's Care at Norton Suburban Hospital is home to a Level III neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). This unit has the ability to care for infants born very early (before 32 weeks gestation) and very small (less than 3 pounds, 5 ounces).

The staff at the Norton Suburban Hospital Labor and Delivery Center delivers more babies each year than any other Kentucky hospital. In 2004, 5,197 infants were born at Norton Suburban, accounting for approximately 40 percent of all hospital births in Louisville.

Of these babies, more than 800 (16.7 percent of the total births at that facility) can expect to spend time in the NICU. While the Norton Suburban NICU is fortunate to have a highly successful unit (a 99 percent survival rate among neonates), these premature infants are still at increased risk of medical and developmental problems. 

To help alleviate a stressful situation and eliminate the need for families to travel back and forth to the hospital, the Norton Healthcare Foundation has already provided funds through a grant from The Marshall Charitable Foundation in Louisville, Ky., to construct a Ronald McDonald Family Room for parents of infants in the NICU. The family room includes four sleeping rooms, a kitchenette, two full bathrooms, a quiet room, a common room with television and laundry facilities.

Opportunity for giving

The Norton Healthcare Foundation is working with the March of Dimes to offer the NICU Family Center at Norton Suburban Hospital to give newborns and families the gifts of greater comfort and compassion in times of crisis, as well as funding for important equipment and supplies in the NICU. The March of Dimes will match up to $30,000 a year for three years.

Your donation to the NICU Family Center will help provide:

  • A part-time NICU Family Support specialist to work with NICU families and staff
  • A parent care kit and other customized programs designed to educate families on what to expect while their baby is in the NICU
  • Professional development training for the NICU staff

Foundation to raise funds for downtown renovations

A $100,000 gift from the Norton Woman's Board, has helped launch an initiative to raise $4.5 million for a full renovation of obstetrical services at Norton Hospital. The project will enable the hospital to continue to offer a full range of services.

Opportunity for giving

The Norton Healthcare is working to provide funding for this project that will help thousands of families each year. Your donation will help us continue to provide the following services:

  • High risk deliveries, offering specialized care through the Maternal Fetal Medicine Center
  • For women with diabetes: specialized care for women with gestational diabetes, with the support of Norton Diabetes Center, we will successfully mange gestational diabetes and prevent common complications
  • Incorporation of birth planning and a family centered care model
  • Expectant parent programs
