Nemours is an internationally recognized, multi-site pediatric health care system that is built upon a centralized, efficient and collaborative infrastructure committed to improving the health of all children. The mission of Nemours is to improve the health and health care of children by seeking new approaches to the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of childhood diseases and to educate the next generation of leaders in children’s health.
The Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children is located in Wilmington, Delaware, with a 200-bed patient care expansion that opened in November, 2016. This facility combines state-of-the-art inpatient and outpatient facilities for the evaluation and management of infants and children with complex medical conditions, including children with cancer. It serves as a regional referral facility with academic ties to the Sidney Kimmel Medical College at Thomas Jefferson University and the Thomas Jefferson University Hospital. Currently, more than 300 active research projects and clinical trials are in progress under the direction of 100 Nemours physician-scientists, 22 Ph.D. center directors and laboratory heads, and 165 support staff.
In 2012, with over 25 years’ experience in clinical trials research, the Nemours pediatric oncology sites formed the Nemours Community Clinical Oncology Program (CCOP), which was funded in June of 2013. In the first six months of funding, the Nemours CCOP eclipsed Cancer Control accruals from previous years (now 4th among all Children's Oncology Group sites). August 2014, Nemours secured a 5-year grant from the National Cancer Institute of the NIH in support of the Nemours NCI Community Oncology Research Program (NCORP). The Nemours NCORP is only the second pediatric NCORP in the country, and, as the NIH review stated, “It is anticipated that the Nemours NCORP is poised to make substantive contributions to the NCI NCORP research agenda and can serve as a national model for other pediatric cancer health care systems and other children’s collaborative and cooperative research entities for years to come.”
