Norton Suburban opens new neonatal ICU

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Norton Suburban Hospital has opened a new neonatal intensive care unit.

The 40-bed NICU opened Thursday morning. It was designed by parents and staff, who wanted to take a more family-centered approach for the wing.

The old facility was spread out over two different floors and didn't offer any private space.

Now hospital officials hope that better lighting and a more comfortable setting for parents will lead to better outcomes for medically fragile babies.

Norton also showed off a brand new cancer wing on the fifth floor. The space will be used for patients undergoing high-dose chemotherapy.

Patients will be moving into both spaces next week.
