Nemours dupont Pediatric Facility opening Monday in Milford, new concept under one roof
MILFORD, De.- The new Nemours dupont Pediatric Facility in Milford had a pre-opening Thursday at the Bayhealth Sussex Campus.
We’re told this facility was much needed because there were over 10,000 patients from the Southern Delaware area going to their Wilmington location.
“That caused some problems for some patients, especially our migrant workers that may now have access to transportation it caused a lot of canceled apportionment last, no show appointments,” Colleen Davis, Director of Special Projects and Integrated Medicine, said.
The Nemours Pediatric Facility will open for primary care appointments on November 9th, and specialists from Bayhealth’s other locations are being brought in to offer a variety of services bringing a new concept to the area.
“We’ve never before had them come down here and we have not had a practice that encompassed primary care and specialty care and therapy and radiology all under one roof,” Suzanne Bagas, Provider in Charge of Primary Care, said.
One of the main goals for this pediatric facility is to get families the services they need easier in one place, and to collaborate with other community pediatricians in Southern Delaware.
“I see this as bringing us all together to deliver better care or more comprehensive care together in one place,” Bagas said.
This project started back in 2016.
They are now accepting new patients.
It’s important to note this site is being offered on the DART regional bus system giving families an easier way to get there.
