Nemours Co-Founder Dies Pediatric Urologist Known for Warmth


Peter Sheldon Stevens, a co-founder of The Nemours Children's

Clinic, died at his Jacksonville home Sunday after a lengthy illness.

He was 56.

Dr. Stevens was a pediatric urologist. He chose a career in the

medical field because of his ongoing battle with illnesses.

When he was a baby, Dr. Stevens had a tumor and underwent

experimental radiation. He said he grew up around hospitals.

"I always said when I was a kid that I was going to grow up and

try to pay people back," he said in a February newsletter. ". . .

In fact, I wanted to be a heart surgeon initially, but when I

was an intern at the University of Minnesota, I worked with

urologists that did a lot of work with children.

"The sub-speciality, pediatric urology, was barely in its

infancy then, and I decided I was going to do that."

H. Warner Webb, a pediatric surgeon who started the Nemours

clinic with Dr. Stevens and two other physicians, said Dr.

Stevens was known for his humor and his commitment to children.
