Mar 10th 2021

Complex brings new opportunity to West Louisville.

This week GE Appliances (GEA) CEO Kevin Nolan joined city and state leaders for the official ribbon cutting of the new state-of-the-art Norton Healthcare Sports & Learning Center in West Louisville.

GEA has invested in the center to help bring it to life in the Russell neighborhood because of the opportunities it will create for youth and the city.

"When the Urban League talked about building this kind of facility, we knew it was something special," Nolan said. "It was something our company had to be a part of."

"This is really about how you show compassion in action," added Sadiqa Reynolds, Louisville Urban League president and CEO. "It's about how we work together to build a better city."

The 90,000-square-foot, multi-sport complex sits on 24 acres of land and seats up to 4,000 people. It's designed to host local, regional and national track meets as well as other kinds of events and educational experiences.
