Located on the St. Johns River in downtown Jacksonville, Nemours Children’s Specialty Care, Jacksonville offers advanced care with a kid-friendly, family-centered atmosphere.
Our clinic brings together top pediatric specialists and serves as a regional referral source for infants, children and teens in northeast Florida, southeast Georgia and beyond. Working together with our partners at Wolfson Children’s Hospital, we offer comprehensive, compassionate pediatric orthopedic care.
As pediatric orthopedists, we’re dedicated to the treatment of neuromuscular and musculoskeletal conditions — and a large part of our mission is to recognize and treat these problems as early in your child’s life as possible. We welcome kids with all types of orthopedic problems, regardless of how simple or complex their condition (and their care) might be. Our goal is always to improve children’s quality of life — and help kids be kids, no matter what medical condition they face.
At Nemours, we treat the whole child, not just the condition. Because pediatric orthopedic conditions and injuries can affect kids in many ways, we rely on a team approach that combines the expertise of our Nemours pediatric specialists with Wolfson Children's Hospital.

Nemours' distinguished reputation didn’t happen overnight. We've been setting the standard for pediatric orthopedic care since 1940, when Alfred I. duPont's philanthropic vision was first realized through the creation of the duPont Institute in Delaware — a place which, for 40 years, was devoted entirely to pediatric orthopedics and led by renowned pediatric orthopedists in the developing field.
Since then, the hospital has grown and so has our program. Yet its pioneering spirit remains. We’ve also further fulfilled the vision of Alfred I. duPont by expanding our geographic reach for orthopedics for kids through Nemours Children’s Clinic locations in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, as well as Jacksonville, Fleming Island, Orlando and Pensacola in Florida. Together, we share a commitment to offering procedural and technological excellence, dedicated and compassionate care, and the latest in clinical research and training.
And in everything we do, we value your involvement as a key member of the care team. After all, who knows your child better than you? We want you and your family to be an active participant in the decision-making, care and healing process.
Whatever kind of pediatric orthopedic challenge your family is facing, our Nemours specialists will do whatever it takes to give your child the very best, most comprehensive and compassionate care available.
