Jacksonville-based Nemours reveals new name, logo and strategic plan

Moss unveiled the new name — Nemours Children’s Health, for all its locations — logo and five-year strategic plan Wednesday during a virtual Founder’s Day event commemorating Alfred I. duPont’s philanthropic legacy. Nemours Children’s Health In an interview with The Times-Union, he acknowledged that changing children’s health care from the current fee-for-service model to a “pay-for-health” model was a “big, ambitious goal.”

“Our commitment to transforming children’s health recognizes that we must re-write its definition,” he said. “Why now? The community’s children need us to do so now …Nemours will be the one to step up.” “Nemours plans to play a major role in changing the way America cares for children,” Moss said. “The way that we pay for medical care for kids is economic, driven by volume and complexity … That’s the opposite of health.

In a white paper called “How Children Can Transform the Economy … and Health Care,” Moss noted that children generally account for 7 percent of total medical care spending, but the number skyrockets when they become adults. “By improving the health and well-being of children today, we will have a healthier population of adults in the future — helping to improve the health care system and strengthen the economy,” he wrote. “The benefit of intervention in childhood is huge. Health trajectories and behaviors can still be readily influenced. These changes can last a lifetime and even impact the next generation. “It’s something so much bigger … The way we live,” Moss said. Children’s hospitals “should be overall stewards” of children’s health care, but other health systems, insurance companies, community organizations, nonprofits and government must be involved, he said.

Pay for health, not for service Fifteen percent of children’s health is the product of “quality medical care,” he said, while 85 percent stems from so-called social determinants of health, such as quality education, safe housing, food security and protection from violence and other harm. Those social determinants must be addressed before children carry the resulting negative impacts into adulthood, he said.
