It opened in June of 2015 in collaboration between Nicklaus Children’s Health System (then Miami Children’s Health System) and a group of physician investors, to increase access to world-class pediatric outpatient surgical care. Located on the University Park campus of Florida International University, the center features five operating rooms for children up to 21 years of age. Close to 9,000 pediatric outpatient surgeries have been performed at the ASC to date.
Outpatient surgical services offered at the ASC include gastroenterology, ophthalmology, otolaryngology, orthopedics, plastic surgery, urology and general pediatric surgery.
