Norton Healthcare opens new urgent care center in former Walmart


Norton Healthcare Inc. will open its newest immediate care center and provider practice in a former Walmart Neighborhood Market.The facility, 3101 Poplar Level Road, will begin treating patients on Dec. 20. Norton bought the space in April 2019 for about $4 million. It planned to begin construction in early 2020, but with the onset of the pandemic it used the space for drive-thru Covid-19 testing instead.Construction on the 40,580-square-foot space began in November 2020, with a renovation cost of about $12.3 million.The project marks Norton’s 18th urgent care clinic. It will also house Norton Community Medical Associates – Audubon and a CPA Laboratory collection area.The space is next door to Norton Audubon Hospital. The 24 primary care physicians that will practice in the new location previously worked in office space in the hospital. Moving to the new location will allow the hospital more space for its Heart and Vascular Institute.Creating more space in Audubon will allow three or four Heart and Vascular divisions to practice within the same space as opposed to scattered across floors and building as it is now.The primary care practice has 54 exam rooms, 10 of which are designated telehealth rooms and two are procedure rooms. The telehealth rooms can double as a standard exam room, which Brandy Barry, construction project manager on the facility, said was by design, in case there becomes less demand for telehealth.Read more about the new urgent care center with our media partner Louisville Business First.
