Norton sues UofL Hospital

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Norton Healthcare has filed suit against University of Louisville Hospital in an ongoing battle over Kosair Children's Hospital.

The lawsuit comes after UofL claimed Norton is violating an agreement by possibly teaming up with the University of Kentucky. UofL owns the land Kosair Children's sits on. In the suit, Norton claims UofL does not have the right to evict.

Norton says UofL threatened to evict Norton unless Norton's talks with UK stopped. Norton also said offers to negotiate with UofL have been declined.

In a statement, the University of Louisville claims Norton is the party that won't negotiate. UofL officials also said it is unfortunate that a lawsuit was filed instead of meeting to negotiate a long-term agreement for the care of children at Kosair Children's Hospital.
