Nunnelee Pediatric Specialty Clinics
Chronic medical conditions in children are much different than chronic conditions in adults. Children need care from pediatric teams who not only specialize in the condition, but also understand the impact that chronic illnesses have on the child and their family.
New Hanover Regional Medical Center’s Nunnelee Pediatric Specialty Clinics provide care to thousands of children from around southeastern North Carolina and northeastern South Carolina. Here families have access to more than 30 pediatric physician specialists, nurse practitioners and physician assistants dedicated to the diagnosis and ongoing treatment of children with a wide range of medical conditions including diabetes, growth disorders, asthma, and digestive issues. They also provide ongoing follow-up care for children born premature or with complications.
The excellent medical treatment children receive at the Nunnelee Pediatric Specialty Clinics provides the kind of support that helps kids be kids.
