MIAMI, March 28, 2018 (Newswire.com) - The Nicklaus Children’s Hospital was originally conceived in 1928 by a group of 11 entertainers, celebrities and show business professionals known as The Variety Club. The group wanted to build a hospital which would focus exclusively on the needs of children battling illness with equal acceptance across creeds, race and social standing.
By 1950, the Nicklaus Children’s Hospital was established in South Florida. Today, central hospital facility in Miami houses nearly 300 beds and hosts close to 800 attending doctors and 475 children’s health subspecialists. The hospital is known for innovative and compassionate healthcare focused on the unique needs of children and hosts the largest pediatric teaching program in the southeastern region of the U.S.
