When it comes to healthcare, adults and children have completely different needs. Nicklaus Children's Hospital (formerly Miami Children's Hospital) focuses solely on the care of children. If your child ever needs specialty care, Nicklaus Children's is renowned for excellence in all aspects of pediatric medicine. Whether you come for an appointment, or your child is brought in by our LifeFlight® Critical Care Transport service, you can rest assured that no other facility in the region has more pediatric subspecialties available to collaborate in the care of children. (Please see the list of pediatric subspecialists.) In fact, since 2008 many of our programs have been ranked among the best in the nation by U.S.News & World Report in its listings of "America's Best Children's Hospitals." In 2011-2012, Nicklaus Children's Hospital was the only Florida hospital ranked in all subspecialty categories surveyed by U.S. News. What's more, every aspect of the care program is designed with children in mind, from our child- and-family friendly facilities to care providers who explain medical treatment in language children can understand. Additionally, our network of outpatient centers is extensive. No matter where you are, a Nicklaus Children's Hospital facility is nearby. It's no wonder we're the region's pediatric care leader.
