About Children & Family Hospital of South Florida

Founded in 1963 by a group of physicians, CFHSF was previously known as Pan American Hospital. In 2007, the hospital was renamed Metropolitan Hospital of Miami when Sistema de Salud Metropolitano, a Puerto Rican hospital chain, purchased it. In 2014, the hospital was purchased by a joint venture between NueHealth, an affiliate of Nueterra Capital; Children’s Health Ventures, an affiliate of Nicklaus Children’s Hospital; and 52 local physicians and medical groups.

Under new ownership, the facility underwent $70 Million of investment to renovate the existing facility and to add a third floor, and was reopened as The Miami Medical Center (TMMC).  The renovations brought the facility up to modern standards.  All areas of the Hospital were remodeled, including general patient rooms, VIP patient rooms, labor and delivery suites, operating rooms, imaging department, kitchen and dining area, and common areas.  The renovations aimed to transform the Hospital into an upscale “concierge” medical center and to draw international medical tourists seeking care in the U.S. 

TMMC was operational from 2016 – October 2017, when patient services were suspended and the owners filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy.  In 2018, Variety Children’s Hospital, an affiliate of Nicklaus Children’s Hospital, acquired TMMC’s operations and facility and is now the sole owner of the Property.

TMMC services included 27 clinical specialties, with a strong emphasis in orthopedics, spine, OB/GYN and robotic surgery.  TMMC also offered a full-service diagnostic imaging department, pharmacy and laboratory. 

Starting in 2021, the Hospital will operate under the new brand of CFHSF and the license would allow CFHSF to provide the following services:

  • Burn Care

  • Hematology/Oncology
