Christiana Care is a non-profit regional health care system comprised of hospitals, outpatient facilities, and clinics throughout northern Delaware and surrounding communities. The Eugene du Pont Preventive Medicine & Rehabilitation Institute in Wilmington, Delaware, supports a wide range of programs to promote health, prevent disease, and minimize disability. It occupies the Victorian mansion built by the Du Pont family in the late 1800s named “Pelleport,” which has undergone periodic renovations over the years.
