The Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children is one of the nation's leading pediatric health systems, dedicated to advancing higher standards in children’s health. June 14th, 2013 marked their 8th Annual 'A Night at Nemours' gala to benefit the Solid Organ Transplant Program. The program started in 2000, and many advances, such as better organ preservation, more effective anti-rejection medication, a fair system for organ allocation, and improved surgical techniques, have been made since then.
A new 5-story expansion is set to open at the hospital in 2014, This state-of-the-art facility will include, among other advances, a brand-new Pediatric Intensive Care Unit and Blood and Bone Marrow Transplant Unit. This new environment will offer privacy for the patients and families, and support better infection control.
Nemours is a voice for children at the local, state, and cares for 250,000 children annually in hospital, clinic, and other settings. Wayman is proud to be a sponsor of this year's gala, and to share a community with such a dedicated, caring team.
