Our Why

There is no limit to what our care can do

Care is more than what we provide to our patients. Care — without judgment, without hesitation — is our contribution to the world we live in. Others make things or sell things. We care for people. Not some people, not certain people. Everybody in our community. Because caring deeply, caring as much as we possibly can, is our one and only purpose.

At Norton Healthcare, care heals. Care connects us. Care builds buildings. Care finds cures and funds technology. We get up in the morning because we care. We stay late, we innovate, because we care. There is no limit to what our care can do — for our employees, our patients and our community.

Tobacco-free campuses

All Norton KDH locations, including the Indiana hospital and all provider offices, are tobacco-free. This includes all parking lots, sidewalks and landscaped areas. Thank you for helping us maintain a clean and tobacco-free environment for all of our patients, guests and visitors.

Prior History of Norton KDH

The inspiration of 12 local women became a reality when Drusilla Cravens, a wealthy widow, agreed to donate the house that was used as the first hospital on Aug. 25, 1899. In the century to follow, King’s Daughters’ Health grew into a regional healthcare facility, serving families from more than five counties. Formerly located in historic downtown Madison, King’s Daughters’ Health opened its new, hilltop campus in early 2013.
