Infrastructure That Improves Research
Our Location in Lake Nona Medical City
An area of Orlando called Lake Nona Medical City is home to NCH and the University of Central Florida College of Medicine. A dedicated 650-acre health and life sciences park, Medical City is designed to advance health care by clustering health care and bioscience facilities to accelerate innovation.
Because Nemours is the only health system in the Southeast selected to participate in PEDSnet, NCH can lead the region with research-based biomedical discoveries, technological advances and treatment protocols.
Multistate System Access to EHRs
Nemours Children's Health System is the nation's only integrated children's health system with two freestanding hospitals. Care teams are connected across the miles with award-winning electronic health record technology, which residents can access for scholarly activity.
Nemours is one of the few organizations in the country with the capability to collect genetic and pharmacogenomics data from a large and diverse population of children, and then use that data to guide treatment decisions.
Roche Molecular Center of Excellence
NCH, the University of Central Florida College of Medicine and Roche Diagnostics Corporation establish and maintain a Roche Molecular Center of Excellence (MCOE) within Medical City. Roche's network enables noncompeting regional laboratories across the country to collaborate and capitalize on scientific knowledge in molecular testing. This, in turn, helps accelerate the advancement of new test methods and technology. The network includes about 30 leading U.S. diagnostic laboratories.
