UofL pediatric pulmonology providers are now with Norton Children’s Pulmonology

At Norton Children’s Pulmonology, affiliated with the UofL School of Medicine, patients benefit from access to the comprehensive resources of the Norton Children’s network of care.

The affiliation between Norton Healthcare, UofL Physicians – Pediatrics and the University of Louisville School of Medicine makes it easier for children and their families to access comprehensive pulmonology care connected to the Norton Children’s network of care.

This network provides a collaboration between subspecialties, access to inpatient care and improved continuity of care through Epic electronic medical records throughout the Norton Children’s system. Norton EpicLink allows providers to make a referral and stay connected to their patient’s progress, testing and care notes for any Norton Children’s encounter.

The specialists with Norton Children’s Pulmonology, affiliated with the UofL School of Medicine, have the training and experience to care for children with all types of breathing challenges, lung disease and respiratory disorders.

Experienced physicians who serve on the UofL School of Medicine faculty are also passing along their expertise to the next generation of providers and conducting valuable clinical research that brings innovative treatments to their patients.
