Nemours Children's transition of care team helps kids grow into healthy adults. We teach children as young as age 11 to start taking control of their health and wellness. And when it’s time, we help them switch to adult providers to ensure seamless medical care.
We’re pioneers in the field and have set the standard for transition of care. In fact, we were the nation’s first children’s hospital to offer complete services for kids with a range of medical needs. Today, hospitals across the country model their programs after ours.
Our team includes a pediatrician and a transition social work coordinator. We help your child understand their condition and treatments, make appointments, talk to doctors, find adult specialists, apply for resources, and much more.
We work with kids who have ongoing or complex medical conditions, or anyone under Nemours care. Together, with your family, we build your child’s confidence and empower them to become their healthiest selves.
