"This new affiliation with PM Pediatrics, coupled with our current Nemours Urgent Care in Glen Mills and our Nemours CareConnect telehealth platform, gives Pennsylvania families even greater access to high quality pediatric urgent care,” said Pauline Corso, Operational Vice President of Nemours Children’s Health System and Chief Operating Officer of the Physician Network in the Delaware Valley.
Wilmington, DE – Nemours Children’s Health is pleased to name PM Pediatrics as its preferred urgent care partner to complement their existing urgent care and on demand options.
PM Pediatrics, the nation’s largest provider of urgent care for children and young adults, has four nearby locations: Springfield, Wynnewood, Wayne, and Abington, Pennsylvania. With this new affiliation, Nemours can offer families more access to pediatric care, including nights and weekends, with on-site lab and x-ray capabilities, and treatment for many injuries and conditions that otherwise would require a trip to an emergency department.
Current Nemours patients will find every visit to PM Pediatrics a seamless extension to the best in class experience they are accustomed to with Nemours. The sharing of their electronic health records makes any follow up visit with their primary care doctor, or scheduling a specialty care appointment, quick and easy. For non-Nemours patients, families who seek care from PM Pediatrics will obtain priority access to Nemours’ network of pediatric experts, should specialty care follow-up be needed. Both Nemours and PM Pediatrics are committed to compassionate, equitable and high quality health care for all children.
“This new affiliation with PM Pediatrics, coupled with our current Nemours Urgent Care in Glen Mills and our Nemours CareConnect telehealth platform, gives Pennsylvania families even greater access to high quality pediatric urgent care,” said Pauline Corso, Operational Vice President of Nemours Children’s Health System and Chief Operating Officer of the Physician Network in the Delaware Valley. “Parents will find comfort in knowing that they have two trusted names in pediatric care working together during convenient hours.”
“We are pleased to join forces with Nemours Children’s Health and extend our unique formula of top notch pediatric urgent care coupled with a child-friendly, convenient experience,” said Dr. Jeffrey Schor, pediatric emergency physician and co-founder of PM Pediatrics. “Our two organizations share the same mission of enhancing children’s health by creating rapid access to pediatric experts right in the communities where our patients live.”
PM Pediatrics Urgent care locations are open every day of the year, including weekends and holidays.
