World-class care is only part of the solution. Children need so much more.

Going Well Beyond Medicine

About 80% of what affects a child’s health takes place in their home, school and community. Nemours Children’s is making a difference with programs that address nonmedical challenges — to create a healthier future, for all kids.

Reimagining Children’s Health

We’re transforming the idea of what it takes to keep children well, beyond medicine. Besides providing world-class clinical care, we’re addressing the social, economic, behavioral and environmental factors that affect kids every day.

Collaboration Is Key

Creating healthier generations of children depends on strategic partnerships with parents, employers, community groups, government agencies and others. Together, we gain a broader understanding of the obstacles and think of new and different ways to overcome them.

A Call for Change

The framework of the nation’s health care system doesn’t always work for children. We’re advocating for health reforms, raising awareness of the issues facing young people and advancing policies with lasting impact for generations to come.

Leadership in Children’s Health

Nemours is a thought leader in transforming children’s health care. Our president and CEO, Dr. Larry Moss, advances the national dialogue by engaging with other children’s health care leaders and the business community. 

Forwarding the Conversation

Nemours is advocating for children's mental and behavioral health with leaders and policy makers in the U.S. government and beyond. One recent example is a forum we hosted at the Nemours Estate in Wilmington, Del., with Xavier Becerra, Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
