Partnership between Nemours Children’s and Daily’s illustrates joint commitment to redefining children’s health
“The dedication of the Daily’s Foundation Pavilion reflecting this new co-branded signage is a visual representation of the incredible partnership between Nemours Children’s Health and the Daily’s Foundation,” said R. Lawrence Moss, MD, President and CEO of Nemours Children’s Health. “This transformational gift establishes the Daily’s Foundation Pavilion as a beacon for children’s health– one that supports and shares Nemours vision of health at home, in school, in the community, and through excellent medical care offered here at Nemours.”

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (August 24, 2021) – Nemours Children’s Health and The Daily’s Foundation officially dedicated The Daily’s Foundation Pavilion at Nemours Children’s Health, Jacksonville during a small private gathering to minimize COVID-19 exposure on Monday, August 23. The dedication commemorated the partnership of the two Jacksonville-based organizations, and featured the unveiling of the new, co-branded signage at Nemours Children’s Jacksonville.

The Daily’s Foundation’s $5 million gift to Nemours Children’s, announced last December, underscores Daily’s commitment to improving the health of children in the Jacksonville community and beyond. This transformational gift also reflects the profound collaboration between Nemours Children’s and Daily’s as the missions of both organizations are dedicated to bringing health and well-being to families where they live, work and play. Daily’s support will help fuel innovations to improve care across the health system and support the enhancement of facilities in Jacksonville.

“The dedication of the Daily’s Foundation Pavilion reflecting this new co-branded signage is a visual representation of the incredible partnership between Nemours Children’s Health and the Daily’s Foundation,” said R. Lawrence Moss, MD, President and CEO of Nemours Children’s Health.  “This transformational gift establishes the Daily’s Foundation Pavilion as a beacon for children’s health– one that supports and shares Nemours vision of health at home, in school, in the community, and through excellent medical care offered here at Nemours.”

The Nemours and Daily’s partnership began in 2019. Most recently, Daily’s launched a fundraising campaign in 76 of its stores across North Carolina and Florida called “Help Spread Hope to Children Everywhere.” This was the second of two campaigns since 2020 that encouraged customers to donate to Nemours Children’s. Daily’s also hosted The Daily’s Foundation Charity Golf Tournament where proceeds benefited Nemours as well as the Inaugural Daily’s Foundation Concert featuring Brantley Gilbert’s “Not Like Us” tour. 

"This dedication reinforces our commitment to children and families in Jacksonville and to furthering the amazing work of Nemours Children’s Health,” said Aubrey Edge, President & CEO of Daily’s. “It is our honor to partner with such an incredible organization and help support the next-level care that The Daily’s Foundation Pavilion at Nemours Children’s Health, Jacksonville provides. Our hope is that the partnership will bring comfort and well-being for children in need of advanced care and added resources to the outstanding clinicians and programs at Nemours Children’s. The Daily’s Foundation is proud to support Nemours Children’s Health in this exciting new chapter."

In May, Nemours Children’s Health announced the health system’s name change as a reflection of its new strategic direction to redefine children’s health and unveiled a new brand mark called “The Loop of Care.” An infinity symbol, The Loop of Care represents the enduring relationship between a child and caregiver, as well as Nemours Children’s continuous quest for innovation. The launch of Nemours Children’s Health’s new brand and official name change also occurred on August 23. 

Moss added, “Our vision to create the healthiest generations of children will be accomplished with the help of committed philanthropic partners such as the Daily’s Foundation.  Nemours Children’s Health is very grateful for our continued partnership to improve the world in which every child lives.”
