Inpatient Care

Children who are hospitalized during the course of their care receive treatment and support in Nicklaus Children's 30-bed dedicated Hematology/Oncology Unit. Patient rooms feature cheerful décor and have been specially designed for patients with weakened immune systems to minimize the risk of infection.
 

During their stay, children experience the special environment of a dedicated children’s hospital, where all care and support personnel are experienced in meeting the needs of sick children. Highlights include visits from the Big Apple Circus® Clown Care, the pet therapy team and Child Life specialists, who spend time with each child daily to ensure that his or her emotional and recreational needs are being met. What’s more, children meet and mingle with other youngsters with similar health issues, often developing lasting bonds that help sustain them throughout their care and recovery.


Families of children at Nicklaus Children's also benefit from the Michael Fux Family Center. This facility serves as a home away from home, offering basic comforts such as showers and laundry facilities, as well as stress relievers, including a small workout gym and massage room, and dazzling family entertainment facilities, including a movie theater and libraries.
