Nemours Children’s Health System expands in Lake and Seminole Counties

One of the Nation’s Largest Pediatric Health Systems Opens Two Primary Care Offices

Families in Lake and Seminole counties will now have greater access to the Nemours Children’s Health System through two new primary care offices. Nemours Children’s Primary Care, Clermont and Nemours Children’s Primary Care, Oviedo both opened their doors to patients and families this month.

The physicians at each location are now providing a variety of pediatric services; from checkups and immunizations to sick visits and physicals. Patient families will be more connected to Nemours’ team of world-class pediatric specialists as the primary care locations share an electronic health record with Nemours Children’s Hospital and Nemours Children’s Specialty Care locations.  This integration provides every member of the care team — including the patient families — with a complete picture of a child’s care history.

“If a doctor at Nemours Children’s Primary Care identifies a particular medical issue, the team at the hospital will see that important information in a child’s electronic health record, should the child need to see a specialist or need hospitalization,” said Dr. Lane Donnelly, Chief Medical Officer of Nemours Children’s Hospital. “This shared electronic information helps Nemours bring families safe, cost-effective care.”

Dr.  Odette Stanley-Brown is the physician who will treat kids at Nemours Children’s Primary Care, Clermont on 1371 Citrus Tower Boulevard. She is a board-certified pediatrician and fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics who has provided health care to Florida families for more than 25 years and she’s been a pediatric practitioner in the hospital as well as the urgent care environment.

Dr. Andrea Burns, a native Floridian and Oviedo resident, will lead Nemours Children’s Primary Care, Oviedo which is located at 7455 Pinemire Drive. Dr. Burns also helps with community-based educational workshops on adolescent health and obesity prevention and volunteers with two Central Florida service organizations.

In addition to the nine Nemours Children’s Primary Care locations, the network in Central Florida includes Nemours Children’s Hospital with a full-service, pediatrics-only Emergency Department in Orlando’s Lake Nona Medical City, three Nemours Specialty Care locations, and five Nemours Children’s Urgent Care locations.  These locations will also share the electronic health record with the other components of the Nemours Children’s Health System.
