Pediatric pulmonary specialists (or pulmonologists, lung and respiratory care doctors) at Nemours Children’s Specialty Care, Jacksonville, evaluate, diagnose, treat and provide long-term management for infants, children and teens who have a variety of lung and airway diseases.

Your child’s pulmonary care team may also include experts from our pediatric partner Wolfson Children’s Hospital. Together, we offer the area’s most comprehensive pulmonology programs and clinics, including care for kids with sickle cell disease, asthma, cystic fibrosis and more.
Next door at Wolfson Children’s Hospital, Nemours directs Jacksonville’s only comprehensive pediatric asthma care program developed by pulmonary and allergy/immunology specialists. The program is dedicated to providing advanced asthma care and educating children, families and the community about the disease. Our asthma care team also partners with other Jacksonville area hospitals to develop standardized, inpatient care for kids with asthma.
We are also pleased to offer a combined sickle cell/pulmonology clinic. A common complication for children with sickle cell anemia is breathing trouble due to asthma, pneumonia, pulmonary hypertension or other problems. The doctors in the divisions of hematology/oncology and pulmonology have come together to form a multidisciplinary clinic (coordinated care team) to provide one-stop care for children with sickle cell anemia and chronic breathing problems.
The Cystic Fibrosis Care Center at Nemours Children’s Specialty Care, Jacksonville is nationally accredited by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, which means we’re actively involved in helping children from birth to 18 live long, healthy lives. We offer ongoing care that addresses the whole child and family by enhancing patient education, improving nutrition and diet, participating in a national registry that allows researchers to study drug effectiveness and more.
