For patients of the Medical Group of Christiana Care’s primary care practice now open in sparkling new office space in Medical Arts Pavilion 2, great care is getting even better.
The practice, called the HealthCare Center at Medical Arts Pavilion 2, opened on Monday, April 28. The practice moved from the HealthCare Center at Christiana. The new site offers family and internal medicine, pediatrics and a new lab service all in one convenient location.
The practice provides two health coaches for patients with chronic conditions, such as diabetes and heart failure, to get the extra help they need. The onsite lab service, just for patients of the practice, provides routine lab testing without an appointment.

“We are making high-quality care easier and more effective for our patients,” said Eric Schwartz, M.D., medical director of the Medical Group of Christiana Care. “We want to provide our patients greater value along the entire continuum of care, from acute care needs to treatment of chronic conditions.”
The 17 providers and more than 40 support staff at the practice offer a wide range of services:
- Primary medical care for adults and children.
- Gynecology and women’s health.
- Physical examinations.
“I really like that all the primary care practices are in the same location,” said Lisa Burroughs of Wilmington, who came to see Samantha DeCouto, D.O., on opening day. “I know I am going to get great care here. The practice is so well organized.”
As at all Christiana Care primary care practices, patients can register to access their own online patient portal where they can request appointments, ask questions and see lab and imaging results. Patients can communicate with the office by phone or through secure online messaging.
Staff are enthusiastic about the spacious site. “The exam rooms are larger, patient waiting areas are bright and cheerful and the employee work stations are all ergonomic,” said Sandy Camacho, practice supervisor. “It is beautiful, modern and a great place to come to work every day.”
The practice is accepting new patients.
