Collaborating for Kids
Children and teens need specialized medical care. They’re not just little adults, and many illnesses affect them differently. That’s why Nemours Children’s Health System collaborates with Phoenixville Hospital to offer our specialized pediatric expertise.
Combining Phoenixville Hospital’s own highly trained staff with our advanced pediatric care 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 Phoenixville Hospital for:
- Emergency Department (ED) care — Our physicians provide consultations for children and teens in Phoenixville Hospital’s Emergency Department. That means Phoenixville Hospital 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 — Nemours neonatologists (newborn medicine specialists) care for newborns in the hospital’s Level II neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). Level II means our staff and the NICU can care for critically ill babies and offer the greatest variety of support in the special care newborn nursery for babies born as early as 32 weeks. The NICU offers mechanical ventilation and minor surgical procedures like central line placement.
