Nicklaus Children's Hospital History

For more than 65 years, Nicklaus Children's Hospital has provided state-of-the-art pediatric care for South Florida's children, birth to age 21. The idea for the unique pediatric hospital dates back to the 1930s when Miami's leading orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Arthur Weiland, proposed building a South Florida hospital for children with debilitating orthopedic conditions. With the outbreak of polio, the hospital became known as the polio hospital of South Florida.  Founded in 1950 as Variety Children's Hospital, the renowned medical institution was renamed Nicklaus Children's Hospital in 2015, following a generous pledge from the Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation and golf icon Jack Nicklaus and his wife Barbara. The 289-bed pediatric complex offers more than 40 distinct medical specialties to treat childhood diseases.
