At Christiana Care there is no need to choose.

We are fortunate to have the unique combination of a top-rated tertiary-care medical center as well as a growing community hospital, enabling us to enjoy the best of both worlds.

At Christiana Hospital you will appreciate the crucial role our health system plays as a regional center for excellence in heart services (including cardiac surgery and coronary angioplasty), cancer treatment, women’s health services, physical medicine and rehabilitation, infectious diseases, general medicine and surgery, and the state’s high-intensity trauma services. Here, residents will also benefit from education involving multiple residency programs.

At Wilmington Hospital, residents enjoy taking care of patients in a community hospital setting in which family medicine is the primary residency program in the hospital. Residents enjoy the direct contact and teaching they receive from attendings and specialists. Because our second outpatient office is directly across the street from Wilmington Hospital, residents and patients experience wonderful continuity of care.
