Collaborating for Kids
Adult care may not be the best fit for children’s needs. That’s why Nemours Children’s Health System collaborates with Pottstown Memorial Medical Center (PMMC) to offer our specialized pediatric expertise.
Combining PMMC’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 PMMC for:
- Emergency Department (ED) care — Our physicians provide consultations for children and teens in PMMC’s Emergency Department. That means PMMC physicians ask our pediatric specialists for their expertise in order to give children the best possible care from doctors who treat kids every day.
- 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 pediatric unit.
- Newborn care — Nemours hospitalists (board-certified pediatricians who are experts in treating hospitalized infants, children and adolescents) provide newborn consultations in PMMC’s Maternal Unit. Nemours pediatricians attend high-risk deliveries, care for newborns in the nursery and stabilize sick newborns for transport if necessary.
