  • Inpatients in our Christiana, Wilmington and Union hospitals may have one visitor daily between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. The visitor must be 16 or older.

Christiana Hospital

A 906-bed, 1.3-million-square-foot, modern facility in Newark, Delaware, Christiana Hospital provides a level of care only available in large-scale teaching hospitals. Christiana Hospital includes Delaware’s only Level I trauma center (as verified by the American College of Surgeons), which is prepared to handle the most extreme medical emergencies. In fact, it is the only Level I trauma center on the East Coast corridor between Baltimore and Philadelphia.

Christiana Hospital is also the only high risk delivering hospital in Delaware offering Level III neonatal intensive care. More than 6,100 babies are born at Christiana Hospital each year.

More than 1,400 physicians and surgeons are active members of ChristianaCare’s Medical-Dental staff, and more than one in 10 of them have located at least part of their practices on the Christiana Hospital campus in two Medical Arts Pavilions adjoining the main hospital.

The Christiana Hospital campus also includes the Helen F. Graham Cancer Center.
