MILFORD, Del. - At a Tuesday night meeting at the Abbott's Grill in Milford, Bayhealth leadership announced that they have made an agreement with Nemour's Children Health System out of Wilmington, to provide a facility for pediatric and senior care. 

"Nemour's pediatricians will care for children," said Terry Murphy, Bayhealth president and CEO. "And Nemours SeniorCare will provide retirees with hearing and vision services." 

Bayhealth organizers said the goal of this partnership was to make this campus "more than just a hospital." The 165-acre property will provide outpatient services, specialty physicians, and diagnostic testing, according to Bayhealth. 

The property will be located by the intersection of Wilkins Road and Cedar Creek Road, just off of Route One in Milford. Michael Ashton, an administrator at Bayhealth, said the location will be beneficial to Sussex County residents who would have to travel to New Castle County in the past, in order to get certain types of pediatric or senior care. 

"What this does is further expands on Nemour's already present locations that they have," he said. "And it creates a more robust, single co-located facility where their services will be available along with the services of a general health campus for the whole entire Sussex County population."

The hospital hopes to start construction on the site by as soon as this Spring. They expect the project will take up to two years to complete.
