Why Choose Us

Why Choose Us

At Nemours Children's Health, Saint Francis we see patients for primary care needs like well-child checkups, sick-child care and immunizations from birth until 18 years old. We offer psychology appointments four days a week. One of our pediatricians specializes in adolescent medicine and offers those appointments twice a month. We also offer a lactation peer counselor for breastfeeding moms.

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.
