How Your Gift Will Help

Your purchase of a brick or paver will help us keep our promise to give families peace of mind while offering an even greater level of pediatric care.
Specifically, as part of the Our Children, Our Hospital Campaign, your gift will help fund:

  • an expanded Emergency Department, featuring two fully equipped trauma rooms and a Fast Track unit where children with minor injuries and illnesses can be seen quickly and return home
  • 144 new, single-patient rooms with private bathrooms and sleeping accommodations, so that families can stay close by and be a part of the healing process
  • playrooms, pocket parks, solariums and family lounges that provide places for parents and kids to be together outside the intensity of the hospital room
  • beautifully landscaped green spaces surrounding the hospital, including a Healing Garden for quiet reflection and enjoyment of the natural environment

Thank you in advance for your gift to support the newly expanded Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children and for sharing in the promise of a healthier future for our children.
