Patients, families and staff gathered to dedicate the new Nemours duPont Pediatrics location in Voorhees

More than 100 people joined Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children CEO Dr. Kevin B. Churchwell on May 22, 2013 to formally dedicate the new Nemours duPont Pediatrics practice on Laurel Oak Road in Voorhees. While Nemours has operated a satellite office in Voorhees for more than a decade, the opening of this new location expands the services available to South Jersey families beyond those previously offered to include outpatient therapy services, medical imaging and additional pediatric specialty services like developmental pediatrics, audiology and ear/nose/throat.

Attendees included patients, families, staff and special guests including New Jersey State Assemblywoman Pamela Lampitt and Voorhees Mayor Michael Mignogna. Assemblywoman Lampitt shared a joint resolution from the House and Senate celebrating the opening of the new location and thanking Nemours for its work caring for the children of South Jersey. A highlight of the evening was Katherine Jones sharing the story of her 2½- year-old daughter Abigail, who was born with a ventricular septic defect and underwent open heart surgery at Nemours duPont Hospital for Children in 2012. In the months following her surgery Abigail continued to receive follow-up care from Nemours, and was recently given a clean bill of health by her doctors.
