At Nemours Children's Health, Jessup Street, we see children and teens for well-child, newborn and adolescent physicals and immunizations, as well as same-day sick appointments. We work to be your children's medical home, which means they will see the same team members each visit, and we'll treat them in a holistic way, addressing all of their medical needs — physically and emotionally as well.
To that end, we offer on-site psychology and social work support. For extended care and ongoing advice to new moms, we also offer lactation support with our experienced pediatric breastfeeding peer counselor.

This office offers additional services, including:

  • Lactation support
  • Social work services
  • Notary services
  • Resource center with computers, printers and educational materials

Call our office anytime, 24/7, to connect with a nurse who can help you manage your child's symptoms.


Our practice is located in the community of northeast Wilmington — just off I-95, Concord Pike exit, about 15 minutes from Nemours Children’s Hospital, Delaware. We're on Jessup Street between the Northeast State Service Center and a day care center.

Off-street parking is available, and there are multiple bus stops — DART #3 stops right across the street and DART #9 stops at the corner.

We Make Care Easy With the Nemours App

We created the Nemours app to help you easily manage your child’s main condition or concern, as well manage other aspects of your child’s health care. The app is interactive, so it quickly assesses how your child is doing, and tells you what steps you should take. It also lets you communicate with your care team, track appointments and symptoms, access your child’s medical records, and launch video doctor visits on demand.

Your Child's Patient-Centered Medical Home

Our practice has been awarded Patient-Centered Medical Home™ (PCMH) Level 3 Recognition by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA). As part of our “medical home,” your child's primary care provider leads a care team dedicated to addressing your child’s comprehensive health care needs — arranging care with other qualified professionals as needed. The care team may include our doctors and nurses, care coordinators, psychologists, social workers and/or lactation consultants.
