Collaborating for Kids
Children and teens are different from adults and need specialized care. That’s why Nemours Children’s Health System collaborates with Nanticoke Memorial Hospital to offer pediatric expertise and equipment in southern Delaware.
Here, we combine our advanced pediatric care with Nanticoke’s highly trained nursing staff, pharmacists, therapists and social workers. This cooperation demonstrates our shared belief that kids do better when we work together.
What Nemours Offers at This Location
Nemours pediatric specialists are available around-the-clock at Nanticoke for:
- Emergency Department (ED) care — Our pediatric specialists provide consultations for children and teens in the hospital’s ED, as needed. That means Nanticoke’s physicians ask our pediatric specialists for their expertise in order to give children the best possible care from doctors who treat kids every day.
- Newborn care — Our specialists also provide their pediatric expertise, when needed, with consultations for newborns at the hospital’s family-friendly, Mother & Baby Care Center.
- Pediatric unit care — A team of Nemours pediatric hospitalists (board-certified pediatricians who are experts in treating hospitalized infants, children and adolescents) provides care in the hospital’s dedicated pediatric suite, with rooms specifically for children and teens.
