Caring for Kids From All Countries
The Nemours International Medicine Program attracts families, physicians and educators who know that pediatric specialties are necessary and not always available around the globe. It is the Nemours promise to help every child — no matter where they live — have a healthier and happier future. Nemours has treated hundreds of international patients for care in nearly every pediatric specialty.
At Nemours, language is never a barrier. We accommodate families from all over the world, and we have interpreter services available 24/7.
The International Medicine Team can assist you with recommendations on places to stay during your child’s medical treatment, assist with transportation needs, and make suggestions for places to shop and worship during your time at Nemours. Our goal is to make you feel comfortable during your stay so that you are able to be an active participant in your child’s care.
The International Medicine Financial Services Team works with a variety of international payers including governments, embassies, insurances and sponsors. We also work with self-pay families. Please contact the team for further information regarding your payment options. Each patient’s family is responsible for all nonmedical related costs, including lodging, food, travel and transportation.
