The Nemours Foundation is a multistate pediatric health care organization with clinics and hospitals in Florida, Delaware, Pennsylvania and New Jersey. In the Philadelphia region it has an academic partnership with Thomas Jefferson University. The Nemours Clinic at Jefferson is located on the campus of Thomas Jefferson University. This clinic provides comprehensive pediatric care to a diverse and underserved population. The Nemours Pediatric Refugee Clinic is conducted at this location.

Beginning in 2010, the Nemours Refugee Clinic with Christopher Raab, MD as its director, has provided both screening and a medical home for refugee children. The Nemours Refugee Clinic was the first pediatric refugee clinic in Philadelphia. The purpose of the clinic is to provide outstanding, age-appropriate culturally competent care in a medical home model to the child refugees of the Philadelphia area. Dr. Raab is a member of the Philadelphia Refugee Health Collaborative and works closely with other members, including all three resettlement agencies in Philadelphia.
The unit provides care to over 100 new refugee children per year as well as all of their follow-up and acute illness appointments. Stacy Irwin, RN, NP also provides direct care and coordination for the refugee clinic. The clinic is staffed by a dedicated team of physicians, residents, medical students, nurses, medical aides and administrative support personnel.
