Ranked among the best children’s hospitals in the nation by U.S. News & World Report, we were also awarded the elite distinction as a 2012 Leapfrog Group Top Children's Hospital, making us one of the safest children’s hospitals in the country.

First Floor, Green Module
Hours: Monday–Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Phone: (302) 651-5245
Our primary care office located within the hospital operates like any other pediatricians’ office. The only difference is that, here, resident physicians (doctors in training) provide primary care services for newborns to teens under the supervision of attending physicians (doctors with all the required education and certifications). That means even more people are part of your child’s primary care team.
You don’t need a referral to make an appointment — just call our office. If your child is a patient at the practice, our nurses are also available after-hours to address your questions and concerns.
When you enter through the main gate on Children's Drive, follow directional signs to the Outpatient Entrance (by the playground). Courtesy valet service is available Monday–Friday, or you may park in the nearby surface parking lots. Walk through the Outpatient Lobby and make a left, followed by a sharp right (after the outpatient lab). The Green Module will be on your right.
If you need help, one of our patient representatives at the front desks in the Outpatient Lobby can help you find where you need to go.
