It includes a network of primary care physicians, medical and surgical specialists as well as home health care, preventive medicine, rehabilitation services and patient/family advisors. A not-for-profit teaching hospital affiliated with Sidney Kimmel Medical College at Thomas Jefferson University, Christiana Care is recognized as a regional center for excellence in cardiology, cancer and women’s health services. The eBrightHealth ACO seeks to improve the quality of care for more than 26,000 Medicare beneficiaries and reduce unnecessary costs. Christiana Care is home to Delaware's only Level I trauma center, the only one of its kind between Philadelphia and Baltimore. Christiana Care also features a Level III neonatal intensive care unit. Christiana Care includes two hospitals with 1,100 patient beds.
Blood Pressure Ambassadors are volunteers, trained and supported by Christiana Care Health System's Center for Heart & Vascular Health, who bring screenings and education to many in the community who have little access to preventive care.
Due to its nursing excellence, Christiana Care has earned redesignation as a Magnet organization from the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). Christiana Care was first in Delaware to achieve Magnet status in 2010, and is now first in the state to attain re-designation, demonstrating sustained excellence in nursing practice and adherence to national standards.
