Leaders in Pediatric Research

Through our active research program, we have made extraordinary contributions to the understanding of childhood diseases and the development of measures for prevention and treatment.

To ensure that our patients have access to the diagnostic and treatment programs we partner with the state in the Child Watch Program. Experience has shown that early intervention can profoundly impact a child’s skills and abilities and can provide the family with the skills necessary to support improvement in the child’s condition.

As key partners with Child Development Watch in New Castle County, we work with a variety of agencies to provide early intervention services in order to have an early impact on each child’s outcome.
