Caring for your family’s best health with love & excellence.
Choosing a pediatrician is an important step for every family. Whether you’re preparing for a new baby or just moved into the area and need a provider you can trust with your child’s health — there are many things to consider. One of the most important being experience.
ChristianaCare pediatricians have a long history of caring for the health of thousands of families in our community. Our caregivers deliver the highest level of expertise and medical leadership.
An Extension of Your Primary Care Doctor
We understand that convenience is an important aspect to consider when choosing many health care providers. In order to better serve the health of all family members, big and small, many of our primary care locations also provide a range of pediatric services.
Pediatricians are similar to primary care providers in delivering a broad spectrum of care over time and coordinating all the care that you or your child receive. With both types of care under the same roof, your family can receive expert care at a location that’s close to home.

In addition, we have pediatric specialists in psychology, psychiatry, radiology, neurology and infectious disease. Our experts participate in leading, clinical pediatric research.

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.
