Family Centered Care Services

As healthcare professionals dedicated to providing the best care for each of our patients, the staff at Nicklaus Children's Hospital recognizes the essential role that families play in the health and wellbeing of the child. As pediatric health specialists, we realize that family members are the main source of support and strength for a child in the hospital. Because of this, every department and program at Nicklaus Children's Hospital is committed to supplying a truly family-centered care environment.

As part of our commitment to Family Centered Care, many units at Nicklaus Children's promote family and patient participation in medical rounds. These Family Centered Care Rounds ensure that families are actively involved in daily care team discussions related to the child’s treatment.
