In order to improve critical care services for children, Norton Children's Hospital in downtown Louisville is undergoing a $78 Million expansion. This renovation includes the Jennifer Lawrence Foundation Cardiac Intensive Care Unit (CICU), "Just for Kids" Critical Care Center and Two NICUs. The renovation will occur in phases and is expected to be complete in 2021. 

The first phase, completed in March 2018, involves a 7,000-square-foot conference center on the first floor featuring five dedicated classrooms and state-of-the-art video conferencing technology.

The new space also is home to a collection of nine Andy Warhol prints from the artist’s “Myths”series.

Next Steps

The new conference center gives way to space on the sixth floor for a 24-bed medical/surgical unit (which is currently on the fourth floor).  Once complete, the Jennifer Lawrence Foundation CICU will begin construction on the fourth floor and will feature private rooms for children recovering from heart procedures.  Following phases include renovations to the NICU, Intermediate Care Nursery and the "Just for Kids" Critical Care Center.  |  Read More
