South Jersey Healthcare recently celebrated the first phase of a transformation in pediatric care. To achieve this transformation, SJH partnered with a renowned children’s health system, and undertaken an expansion project that is bringing us the region’s first level III neonatal intensive care unit. When this transformation is complete, SJH will be able to care for 99 percent of the babies born to women in our service area.
South Jersey Healthcare and Nemours, the parent organization of the Alfred I. DuPont Hospital for Children in Delaware, formed a partnership that brings enhanced pediatric and neonatal services to the health system. With the partnership in place, there is around the clock, on-site pediatric hospitalist coverage at the Regional Medical Center, as well as neonatologists on-site at all times in the NICU. The pediatric hospitalists provide care to hospitalized children and can be called to see pediatric patients in the Emergency Department.
