Founded in 1950, Miami Children's Hospital® is South Florida’s only licensed specialty hospital exclusively for children. Our 289-bed hospital is renowned for excellence in all aspects of pediatric medicine with several specialty programs ranked among the best in the nation in 2010 by U.S. News & World Report.
Our hospital has also been designated an American Nurses Credentialing Center Magnet facility, the nursing profession’s most prestigious institutional honor and is home to the largest pediatric teaching program in the southeastern United States.
Our latest family friendly campus enhancement is the Michael Fux Family Center
, which opened in October 2009. Designed to make families feel more at home while their children are hospitalized, the center has showers and laundry facilities, a small workout gym and massage room, and dazzling family entertainment facilities, including a movie theater.

Our LifeFlight® Critical Care Transport team provides emergency transportation for critically ill babies, infants and children who need immediate emergency treatment. Service is provided 24 hours a day, 365 days a year through a fleet of six ground ambulances, a Sikorsky s76 C+ helicopter and fixed-wing Lear jets.
Our LifeFlight transport team is available to fly worldwide, serving primarily the Caribbean, as well as Central and South America. All aircraft have specially configured advanced life support equipment with air-to-ground communication systems so onboard personnel can coordinate with physicians at Miami Children’s Hospital.
In 2009, LifeFlight became the only program in Florida to be accredited in all services – ground, rotor and fixed wing – from the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems (CAMTS). That honor indicates the hospital’s high standards and dedication to continuing training, as well as the hard work, commitment and dedication of the LifeFlight team. Lifeflight works exclusively with CAMTS and EURAMI certified air ambulance vendors to further support their high safety standards.
