Nemours Children’s Health is one of the largest integrated pediatric health systems in the country. Everything we do — our medical care, research, education, and prevention and advocacy efforts — is focused on kids.
Our goal is to help children, everywhere, grow into healthy adults. To do this, we think of health as more than just medicine. Good health involves education, food, housing, family stability, emotional well-being, equity, justice and more. That’s why we go outside of our walls to reach kids where they live, learn and play. We’re here, beyond medicine.
We have set out to change children’s health for good.
We’re the only children’s health system in the country with two freestanding children’s hospitals. Our resources are reserved just for kids.

Our story began in 1936 with the vision of Alfred I. duPont to do whatever it takes to prevent and treat disabling childhood conditions.
What started as a modest orthopedic hospital in Wilmington, Delaware, has grown into one of the nation’s leading children’s health systems.
Nemours leadership and governance teams are made up of diverse people with a shared vision and heart for kids and families.
