About Nemours

Nemours Children's is one of the largest integrated pediatric health systems in the country. Everything they do - their medical care, research, education, and prevention and advocacy efforts - is focused on kids.

Their goal is to help children, everywhere, grow into healthy adults. To do this, they think of health as more than just medicine. Good health involved education, food, housing, family stability, emotional well-being, equity, justice and more. That's why they go outside of their walls to reach kids where they live, learn, and play.
