Since its founding in 1940, the Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children has served thousands of children from across the country and around the world. The hospital is a division of Nemours, which operates one of the nation's largest subspecialty group practices devoted to pediatric patient care, teaching, and research. Located just outside of Wilmington
, Delaware, on 300 acres of park land, the hospital offers a remarkably beautiful and tranquil setting in which to heal.
Originally founded as an orthopedic facility, they are now a 180-bed hospital that offers all the specialties of pediatric medicine, surgery, and dentistry in a spacious, comfortable, and family-focused facility. Children from birth through age 17 with acute, chronic, and complex health problems benefit from the threefold mission established by our founders - excellence in patient care, education, and research.
