Partnership Brings Care Closer to Home
The exterior work on the new Nemours Sussex Medical Office building located directly across from Bayhealth Hospital and Outpatient Center, Sussex Campus is complete. Glass panels were recently installed and the finishing touches are being put into place on the patient drop-off canopy. Now, work will begin on the interior office spaces for both Bayhealth and Nemours.
Nemours duPont Pediatrics and Nemours SeniorCare will occupy the first floor of the facility. Pediatrics services will include: primary pediatric care; specialty care: allergy, audiology, behavioral health, cardiology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, general surgery, neurology, orthopedics, otolaryngology (ENT), pulmonology, urology and weight management; therapy services: physical, occupational and speech therapy; and diagnostic services: EKG, ECHO, EEG, spirometry, X-ray, and ultrasound. Nemours SeniorCare will provide dental, vision and hearing screening for eligible residents. Coming in 2021, a pediatric urgent care will also open in the Nemours space.
The medical office building will allow Bayhealth to locate more physician practices in one convenient location. On the second and third floors, Bayhealth will house a variety of physician offices including, Women’s Care and Maternal-Fetal Medicine services. Bayhealth Urology, Otolaryngology (ENT), Endocrinology, Bariatrics, Primary Care, Wound Care, and Dermatology will also be offered on site.
A café and community room will be located on the first floor of the Nemours Sussex Medical Office Building. While the facility is expected to open for healthcare services in fall 2020, the café will open before the end of 2019.
