Norton Healthcare expands access to care in east Jeffersonville

New facility extends Norton Clark Hospital emergency and diagnostic care

JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. (Feb. 22, 2024) – Norton Healthcare continues its focus of expanding access to health care in Jeffersonville, Indiana. Additional emergency and diagnostic services soon will be available when Norton Medical Center opens on Monday, March 4, in the Jeffersonville Commons shopping center, 2023 Mercy Way.

The new center, a $17 million investment, will house a full-service emergency department and diagnostic center in approximately 15,000 square feet of space.

“Norton Healthcare is committed to increasing access to care for the residents of Jeffersonville and the surrounding communities,” said Russell F. Cox, president and CEO, Norton Healthcare. “The ability to access care close to home is especially important when emergency services are needed, and we are pleased that this facility includes a 24-hour emergency department.”  

The emergency department will have eight exam rooms — with the capability of converting one to a trauma bay if needed — a lab and access to adjoining diagnostic imaging. It will be open 24 hours per day, seven days a week, with no appointment necessary.

The diagnostic center will include X-ray, CT, ultrasound, screening 3D mammography and MRI capabilities. The center will be open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Patients can schedule an outpatient diagnostic imaging appointment by calling (812) 283-2405.

“Norton Medical Center will provide convenient access, close parking and state-of-the-art equipment for patients who wish to receive emergency or imaging services outside of the traditional hospital setting,” said Kathleen Exline, interim chief administrative officer, Norton Clark Hospital.

The center currently houses a primary care office that also provides occupational medicine services for employers.

Soon, an outpatient behavioral health office will open at this location to help reach those in need of less acute mental health care, including individual and group therapy.

Norton Medical Center was designed by Stengel Hill Architecture Inc. and constructed by Nicklies Development.
