Kosair Charities sues Norton over use of donations

Associated Press

LOUISVILLE - Kosair Charities has filed a lawsuit against Norton Healthcare accusing it of misspending donations and refusing to provide an account of how contributions to Kosair Children's Hospital are spent.

Kosair Charities President Randy Coe says the organization has given $114 million in contributions to the Louisville children's hospital over the years. The lawsuit accuses Norton of not spending all of the donations on the children's hospital.

"We have an obligation to the kids and our donors to make sure the money is being used to help children," Coe said. "We don't want our money to go into the Norton pot."

Norton spokesman Thomas Johnson told The Courier-Journal that he wouldn't respond point-by-point to the "outlandish allegations" in the lawsuit, but denied that "money designated for Kosair Children's Hospital was somehow spent for any other purpose or in any other Norton Healthcare facility."
