About Nicklaus Children's Health System

Nicklaus Children’s Health System, is the region’s only healthcare system exclusively for children. The pediatric system was founded in 2011 as Miami Children’s Health System upon the completion of a large-scale expansion of outpatient, urgent care and rehabilitation services locations.

The once small pediatric hospital focused on “being where the children are” as a strategic imperative and now provided care options and locations from Palm Beach County to South Miami-Dade County.

Today, in addition to Nicklaus Children’s Hospital and a growing number of outpatient centers located as far north as Martin County and throughout the tri-county area, the health system includes Nicklaus Children’s Hospital Foundation, the organization’s fundraising arm; Nicklaus Children's Pediatric Specialists, a nonprofit physician practice subsidiary; a management services organization, and an ambulatory surgery center.

Our vision is to be where the children are. Ultimately, this means being there through all stages of health and life, both physically and emotionally. To be a trusted partner to children and their families, not only in times of illness, but throughout their life journey.

Our mission is to inspire hope and promote lifelong health by providing the best care to every child.
