Nemours continues its commitment to deliver quality care to children and families with a sharp focus on physician recruitment, retention, engagement and well-being. 

The Department of Pediatrics welcomed its newest member to the Central Florida community. Dr. Darlene Calhoun, new Chief of Neonatology, is an accomplished neonatologist who delivered critical care to newborns and served as a faculty member at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital in St. Petersburg, FL.
