LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Norton Healthcare and Kosair Charities have reached a settlement in a legal battle over contributions to a children’s hospital that will remove the Kosair name from the Norton institutions.

The Courier-Journal ( cited a statement Thursday from the organizations that says the resolution allows each to “focus on its respective mission.” Terms weren’t disclosed.

Kosair Charities filed suit against Norton Healthcare last year accusing it of misspending donations and refusing to provide an account of how contributions to Norton Healthcare’s Kosair Children’s Hospital are spent.

Norton filed a countersuit in Jefferson Circuit Court accusing Kosair of claiming that it is a major funder of the hospital when it stopped making contractual payments two years ago. The claim said Kosair was $11.5 million behind on required contributions.

Both sides had denied allegations made by the other.
