Representatives from the location said McDonald's has been a supporter of Kosair for 30 years.

Norton Healthcare released the following statement about the closure:

"Norton Healthcare leadership decided more than three years ago that it would not renew the lease for McDonalds. The lease expires at the end of this year and we need to use the space for expansion of clinical services. We're currently evaluating our options for another food vendor that would occupy a reduced footprint within the hospital.?"
