Impacting Children in Perpetuity
Like many in our industry, we faced unprecedented uncertainty as we entered 2021. Embodying the perseverance and determination of our founder Alfred I. duPont, we pressed on with an unwavering commitment to putting children first.
Care, Outreach, Advocacy
During 2021, Nemours Children’s Health provided direct care and services to approximately 500,000 children in nearly two million encounters. Through outreach, education and advocacy, we were able to support hundreds of thousands of other children — most of whom will never enter our doors. We continued to move our strategy forward: increasing the value of care for the families and communities we serve, while making strategic investments in the future of health.
Through a will that empowered a legacy, Alfred I. duPont set in motion a transformative institution bound to improve the health of generations.
Well Beyond Medicine
Up to 80% of the impacts on children’s health take place outside medical settings. It’s time to improve their world, not just ours.
