Collaborating for Kids
Kids are different than adults, and often need specialized pediatric care. That’s why Nemours Children’s Health System collaborates with Parrish Medical Center to offer our pediatric expertise to children and families in Brevard County.
Combining Parrish Medical Center’s own highly trained staff with our advanced pediatric care demonstrates our shared belief that kids do better when we work together.
