Tuesday, Jul 28, 2015

Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children in Wilmington, DE, and Nemours Children’s Hospital in Orlando, FL, have both been named to the 17th annual Hospitals and Health Networks magazine 2015 Most Wired List. This is the fifth consecutive year duPont Hospital for Children made the list, while Nemours Children’s Hospital is being recognized for the third time since opening in October 2012. “Most Wired” is a coveted distinction that acknowledges excellence in the use of information technology.  Nearly a third of all hospitals nationwide responded, but only 39% of U.S hospitals made the 2015 Most Wired List.
