Devonshire Apartments

Out of town parents and families oftentimes need extended overnight accommodations, Nicklaus Children's also has apartments and efficiencies that can be rented for brief periods of time at very reasonable rates.

Parents play a key role in the treatment process. We try to ensure that they can be near their child during the treatment process. This is just one example of how Nicklaus Children's Hospital cares for families.

All of these services are provided as Nicklaus Children's is firmly committed to providing family-centered care.

Devonshire Apartment Facts

  • Devonshire Apartments offer a comfortable, supportive temporary home for patient families coming from distant places. Sick and healing children require their families’ continual emotional support during the weeks or even months of recovery. The Devonshire Apartments provide a home away from home where family members can sleep, eat, relax and share experiences with other families in similar situations.            
  • The Devonshire Apartments are always busy and heavily utilized.
  • Most families who stay at Devonshire are Floridians who live outside of Miami-Dade County. Twenty percent come from outside Florida; many are from Latin America and the Caribbean Islands.
  • The average length of stay is three to five days. Some families, however, may spend up to three months because of their child’s condition. Parents of premature babies in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, for example, may need to stay for several months while their baby becomes strong enough to survive in a home environment
  • The Devonshire Apartments consist of two buildings with a total of 20 furnished units, located two blocks from the hospital in a safe residential community.  Units are furnished and include fully equipped kitchens, linens, laundry facilities, private telephone lines/computer jacks, cable television, and maid service. Transportation service to and from the hospital is also provided.
  • In 2006, Rooms To Go donated nearly $100,000 worth of furniture and accessories to the Devonshire Apartments.  Rooms to Go staff personally visited the Devonshire Apartments to select the best type of room furnishings and design for families, replacing well-used but definitely aging furniture with brand new, updated and coordinated furniture.
