LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- The first surgery inside a new pediatric surgery center at Norton Suburban Hospital went smoothly.

Ten-month-old Ellie Bishop had tubes put in her ears Monday morning at the new pediatric unit for Kosair Children's Hospital in St. Matthews.

Four operating rooms are now open along with 19 pre-op and post-op rooms.

This is the first phase of what will become Norton Women's Hospital and Kosair Children's Hospital in St. Matthews as part of Suburban's hospital.

By 2014, they expect to open an emergency room and expand to have in-patient and out-patient care.
