On Sept. 12, 2011, Spring View Hospital in Lebanon, Kentucky and Norton Healthcare in Louisville, Kentucky entered into an affiliation agreement to bring expanded health services to residents of Marion County, Kentucky.
The agreement features these key elements:
Full access by Spring View Hospital medical providers and staff to the extensive training, education and management development services provided by Norton University. These include more than 500 free, accredited online courses in 19 distinct disciplines, including administration, clinical laboratory science, dietetics, emergency medical services, medical records, nurse aide/nursing assistant, nursing, occupational therapy, patient education, pharmacy, physical therapy, physician, physician (ethics), radiologic technology, required safety, respiratory therapy, social work, support staff and wellness/personal enrichment. Spring View Hospital management and staff will also have access to Norton University management and leadership development classes. Spring View Hospital management will also have the opportunity to attend Norton Healthcare’s management development conferences in Louisville.
Development of new and existing clinical programs and services through extension of expertise and resources associated with Norton Healthcare's clinical service lines and centers of excellence to help make that care more available in the communities served by Spring View Hospital. This will involve the establishment of several new subspecialty clinics and clinical services at Spring View Hospital: Heart Care, clinical affiliations and tele-echography (a medical examination performed from miles away).
Better coordination of continuity of care for patients who do require specialized or tertiary care and need to seek that care outside of the communities served by Spring View Hospital. This will include resources such as enhanced use of the Norton Healthcare Access Center, which serves as a single point of access for patients, families and physicians, to connect with physicians and services available through Norton Healthcare. One phone number is all you need.
