DEPTFORD, N.J. (CBS) — Nemours duPont Pediatrics has opened a brand new 65,000 sq. foot building in Deptford. It is duPont’s largest investment in the Delaware Valley, outside of Delaware.
Now, Nemours duPont Pediatrics is officially open in Deptford.
“They don’t have to cross a bridge, so we can reach the children of South Jersey, in their own community,” said Kimberly Parkinson of Nemours duPont.
The $45 million project provides 65,000 sq. feet of pediatric outpatient care and is poised to treat about 500 non-trauma patients a day.
“We have a multitude of clinical practices from cardiology, pulmonology, allergy through neurology, behavioral health, developmental medicine,” said Parkinson.
The facility is equipped to perform kid-friendly X-rays, MRI’s, concussion therapy, ultrasounds and outpatient therapy. They also have a fully functioning, rehabilitative and therapeutic gym designed for growing individuals.
They also have an adjustable depth therapy pool; the only one of its kind in New Jersey.
Construction began in April and kids helped with the design, both inside and out and it seemed to have earned their kiss of approval.
