Nemours Children’s Hospital (NCH) is the residency program’s sponsoring institution and the primary site. The hospital is part of the Nemours Children’s Health System, which is one of the nation’s largest integrated pediatric health systems — and the only one with two free-standing children’s hospitals. NCH is currently operating 105 beds serving patients up to age 18. The hospital is in the process of adding 30 more beds as daily census and level of medical complexity continue to increase.
This practice is a continuity clinic that provides an underserved population with a Patient-Centered Medical Home, certified by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care, Inc. (AAAHC). Patients receive coordinated care that meets stringent national standards and includes families as part of the team.
