Specialized, high-level care, close to home

When your child is sick or injured, you want the best care you can get, as close to home as possible.

Thanks to our collaboration with Nemours duPont Pediatrics, families in Chester, Delaware and Montgomery Counties have access to outstanding pediatric medical care—right here in our community, just outside of Philadelphia.

Bryn Mawr Hospital and Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children have a longstanding relationship, working together to care for children in the Main Line area. Nemours experts are involved in all facets of pediatric care at Bryn Mawr Hospital from pediatric surgery to pediatric cardiology and ophthalmology. Nemours neonatology specialists work in our level III neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), providing 24/7 highly skilled critical care for newborns and babies up to 30 days of age.

In the Pediatric Emergency Department (ED) and Pediatric Unit at Bryn Mawr Hospital, services are provided by Nemours pediatricians who have additional training or experience in pediatric medicine, and by Bryn Mawr Hospital pediatric nurses who are trained in pediatric advanced life support (PALS).

When you bring your child to Bryn Mawr Hospital, you’ll also have access to pediatric expertise from pharmacists, radiologists and anesthesiologists, as well as Nemours subspecialists, including surgeons, who can perform surgeries on-site.

Working together so kids do better.

The only pediatric emergency program on the Main Line

Nemours pediatric emergency medicine physicians and hospitalists have teamed up with Bryn Mawr Hospital nurses to bring a new level of pediatric emergency care to the community. Our pediatric emergency program features:

  • Pediatric surgical specialists available for consultation and surgery 24 hours a day, seven days a week
  • Pediatric treatment area and waiting room with child-sized furniture and interactive toys
  • Emergency transport when advanced pediatric hospital services are needed

Because caring for children is vastly different than caring for adults, our team of pediatricians, pediatric emergency physicians, pediatric pharmacists and pediatric radiologists offer specialized procedures just for kids, such as lower-dose X-rays and appropriate medicine dosages, based on age and weight.

The only pediatric unit on the Main Line

To care for your child 24 hours a day, seven days a week is our team of board-certified pediatricians from Nemours working with our pediatric advanced life support-trained pediatric nurses, respiratory therapists, pharmacists, physical, speech and occupational therapists and social workers—providing outstanding care specially tailored to the unique medical and emotional needs of children.

At Bryn Mawr Hospital, parents are always welcome, and to further contribute to your child’s comfort and security, the same nurse who cares for your child before surgery is often the same one to care for your child after surgery.

Our pediatric unit with 14 private beds includes:

  • A separate treatment room for medical procedures – So your child’s own room remains a place to relax and be comfortable
  • 24-hour visitation for parents – So you never have to leave your child’s side
  • Playroom – A room full of toys and a place for your child to be a kid again
  • Xboxes and flat-screen TVs in every room – So kids and families can enjoy games and movies
  • Art, music, and pet therapy – Innovative approaches to health and healing for our young patients

When you wish to remain overnight and near your child, you’ll find sleep chairs in every room. There is also a family lounge area with television and sofas where you can relax outside your child’s room. Free Wi-Fi is available.
