Overview

Nemours is committed to improving the health of children. As a non-profit children's health organization, we consider the health of every child to be a sacred trust.


Through family-centered care in our children's hospitals and outpatient locations in Delaware, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Florida, as well as world-changing research, education and advocacy, Nemours fulfills the promise of a healthier tomorrow for all children — even those who may never enter our doors.


Nemours began more than 70 years ago with the vision of Alfred I. duPont to improve the lives of children and to do whatever it takes to prevent and treat even the most disabling childhood conditions.


Today, through our children's hospitals and health system, we directly care for 250,000 children annually in the Delaware Valley and Florida, including families who travel from across the country and across the world to see our specialists — treating every child as we would our own.


We also reach beyond the walls of our hospitals and clinics to be a voice for children on a national and international level and to lead the way in prevention, intervention, education and research.


Nemours is growing to better serve the children and families in our care. We have 1.1 million square-feet of space currently devoted to providing children's health care or under construction, all designed with significant input and advice from our patients and families.
