ChristianaCare adds pediatric practice in Dover


ChristianaCare has added Dover, Delaware-based medical practice Adolescent Medicine & General Pediatric Allergy, PA, to its network of pediatric services with the new name ChristianaCare Pediatrics at Dover.

The practice provides a wide range of services for children and teens, including primary medical care for infants and children, childhood vaccines, physical examinations, preventive medicine, and treatment of acute and chronic conditions.

As part of ChristianaCare, the practice is now able to offer an enhanced experience, according to a release.  This includes the option of virtual visits using a computer, tablet, or smartphone, as well as access to medical records and the ability to connect with the care team using ChristianaCare’s digital patient portal.

All ChristianaCare pediatric practices are accepting new patients.

The current providers are:

  • Michelle Clemente, M.D.
  • Nicole Sizer, Medical Assistant.
  • Karen Leigh Moore, LPN.

Fizul Bacchus, who was with the practice for over 30 years, recently retired. ChristianaCare intends to add another provider in the coming months.

The addition of the Dover practice is another indication that ChristianaCare is building more of a statewide footprint.

in the past, the state’s hospital systems have largely avoided moving outside their home territories.

That changed, with Dover’s  Bayhealth moving into a portion of Beebe Healthcare’s Coastal Delaware stronghold and building a new hospital on the Sussex County side of Milford.  ChristianaCare also plans to open physician offices near Rehoboth Beach.

Nemours Children’s Health has also added offices around the state.
