164 Nemours Physicians Named to 2014 Best Doctors in America List

Tuesday, May 13, 2014


164 physicians affiliated with Nemours appear on the recently released Best Doctors in America® List for 2014.  Only five percent of doctors in America earn this prestigious honor. The List is a product of validated peer review, in which doctors who excel in their specialties are selected by their peers in the profession.

“While I have always believed that Nemours physicians are among the best in their fields, it is gratifying to have such a distinguished group of our peers affirm the skill and devotion of our specialists and subspecialists,” said David J. Bailey, MD, MBA, president & CEO of Nemours. “The inclusion of more than 20 percent of our physicians on the Best Doctors in America 2014 list is an honor that recognizes Nemours’ commitment to doing what is within our power to help children grow up healthy and reach their full potential.”

Nemours, headquartered in Jacksonville, Fla., owns and operates Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children in Wilmington, Del., Nemours Children’s Hospital in Orlando, Fla., and 45 pediatric and specialty care locations in Delaware, Florida, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey. Nemours physicians work together — across specialties, clinics, and hospitals — to give children care that's among the safest, most caring, and compassionate. This unique collaboration has earned Nemours a place among the most respected pediatric health care systems in the nation.

The highly regarded Best Doctors in America® List, assembled by Best Doctors, Inc. and audited and certified by Gallup®, results from exhaustive polling of over 45,000 physicians in the United States. Doctors in over 40 specialties and 400 subspecialties of medicine appear on this year’s List.  In a confidential review, current physician listees answer the question, “If you or a loved one needed a doctor in your specialty, to whom would you refer?”  Best Doctors, Inc. evaluates the review results, and verifies all additional information to meet detailed inclusion criteria. Doctors cannot pay to be included in the Best Doctors database, nor are they paid to provide their input.
