Working Together for Kids

Pediatric & Adolescent Medicine of Seminole (formally Progressive Pediatrics) is associated with Nemours, which means we’re part of a primary care network (called the Children’s Health Alliance, or CHA). By being a part of this network, we’re able to give our patients and families added resources for care and education. This doesn’t change the way we operate our practice — it just enhances the care your family receives.

We’ve chosen to associate with Nemours because it's a nationally-recognized children’s health system that provides outstanding pediatric specialty care, research, education and advocacy (being a voice for children’s health issues). We also share the very same commitment to family-centered care — and pride ourselves in treating every child as one of our own.

As part of our family, you will continue to enjoy the same personal care and attention from the Pediatric & Adolescent Medicine of Seminole team. And you can receive referrals to any hospital or specialist of your choice.
