Nicklaus Children's Pediatric Specialists (formerly Pediatric Specialists of America), is the health system’s medical group practice. Established in January 2015 as Pediatric Specialists of America and rebranded in 2020, Nicklaus Children's Pediatric Specialists is a physician-directed, multi-specialty pediatric group with a regional, national and international presence in providing pediatric-centric care through a collaborative team approach, excellence in clinical care, education and research.
Year after year, our pediatric specialty programs are ranked among the best in the nation, according to U.S. News & World Report. We employ more than 250 board-certified physicians specializing in all areas of pediatric care, many of whom consistently appear on the America’s Best Doctors list.
As Nicklaus Children’s Health System has grown, we have sought opportunities to optimize our structure to benefit the organization and our employees. The Nicklaus Children's Pediatric Specialists group offers significant operational advantages to our employed practitioners (including physicians, psychologists, nurse practitioners and physician assistants) and growth opportunities for the health system. These include:
- Heightened opportunities for employed practitioners to have a voice in decisions related to medical and business matters.
- Increased flexibility in marketing our subspecialty practitioners in regions where Nicklaus Children's does not have a presence.
- Enhanced opportunities for service growth.
- Options to see patients at locations throughout South Florida.
