"Nemours + Bayhealth"

New health campus: new collaboration

In the fall, Bayhealth hosted an event at Abbott’s Grill in Milford where Bayhealth leaders, board members, civic leaders, physicians, and community members were on hand to hear updates about the organization’s new health campus in southern Delaware — slated for completion in 2019.

Bayhealth President and Chief Executive Officer Terry Murphy, FACHE, announced an exciting collaboration with Nemours. “I’m pleased to announce an agreement with Nemours to provide specialty care at our new health campus in Milford,” said Murphy. “Nemours pediatricians will care for children, and Nemours SeniorCare will provide retirees with hearing and vision services.”

As part of the collaboration, Nemours will have a dedicated area for development on the new health campus plan. The facility will be positioned on the front of the property and will be easily accessible to patients and visitors.

Enterprise Vice President for Nemours and Chief Medical Officer of the Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children Brent R. King, MD, said, “Our relationship with Bayhealth is one of professional collaboration in pursuit of a larger goal — to give Delawareans access to the best possible care, in their communities, no matter their age.”

The collaboration demonstrates that this new health campus will be more than just a hospital — it will redefine health care in southern Delaware. The 165- acre property will also provide convenient outpatient services such as primary care, specialty physicians and diagnostic testing — all in one location. Bayhealth’s goal is to maximize the community’s access to the best health care in the region.
