The Pediatric Trauma Center at Nemours Children’s Hospital, Delaware is the state’s only Level 1 Pediatric Trauma Center. This means children in the tristate area who need the most advanced pediatric emergency care are transferred here, 24/7.
A Level 1 designation is the highest offered by the American College of Surgeons. We can handle every type of injury. We have state-of-the-art facilities and life-saving equipment just for kids.
Trauma care is complex. It’s important to have experts from many medical specialties available. At Nemours Children’s, we’re all here, under one roof. A surgeon oversees your child’s care and works closely with other members of the team.
In addition to trauma care, our team is committed to preventing injuries in children. We’re out in the community, providing safety information and training. We want all kids to have the best chance to grow up healthy and injury-free.
