As long as children are in need of medical care, we’ll be there.

Going well beyond medicine keeps healthy children healthy, prevents illness and ensures that children with complex health needs are cared for in a manner that addresses their unique physical, emotional, social and educational needs. 

Access to Care

Our organization was founded to care for and heal children. Over 80 years, the expansion of our capabilities has evolved the manner in which we accomplish those goals. However, as long as children are in need of medical care — from routine to rare — or there are cures to be discovered, we’ll be there.

1.6 million patient encounters occurred across Nemours Children’s in 2021. Additionally, our enterprise radiology department read more than 300,000 images.
