Seek­ing to sup­port chil­dren and fam­i­lies through­out the con­tin­uum of life and reach be­yond borders to bring hope and health wher­ever and when­ever it’s needed, the cam­paign high­lights sev­eral sig­nif­i­cant pri­or­i­ties. Among them, sup­port­ing the hos­pi­tal in sav­ing lives by way of a new sta­teof-the-art Emer­gency Depart­ment and en­hanced crit­i­cal care units to be housed in the new Ad­vanced Pe­di­atric Care Pav­il­ion, now un­der con­struc­tion on the hos­pi­tal’s main cam­pus. Equally im­por­tant, the cam­paign seeks to ex­pand pe­di­atric out­reach, pro­vid­ing hope and heal­ing through the en­hance­ment of key cen­ters of ex­cel­lence and ad­vanc­ing to­ward the fu­ture with global/tele­health medicine, re­search and molec­u­lar medicine and pro­gram­matic sup­port.

The Nick­laus Chil­dren’s Emer­gency Depart­ment treats more than 90,000 pa­tients each year mak­ing it one of the

busiest pe­di­atric emer­gency de­part­ments in the coun­try. The 47,000-square-foot ex­pan­sion and en­hance­ment of the depart­ment al­lows for a greater im­pact on fam­i­lies se­lect­ing Nick­laus Chil­dren’s dur­ing times of cri­sis.

The 212,000-square-foot, six-story Ad­vanced Pe­di­atric Care Pav­il­ion prom­ises to be much more than sim­ply a build­ing. Equipped with the most ad­vanced tools and tech­nol­ogy, the pav­il­ion will en­hance the life-sav­ing work of the hos­pi­tal’s three highly rec­og­nized crit­i­cal care units.

Nick­laus Chil­dren’s is com­mit­ted to en­hanc­ing con­ve­nience for South Florida fam­i­lies and pro­vid­ing un­par­al­leled care through the ex­pan­sion of pe­di­atric out­reach. Trans­la­tion: from south­ern Mi­ami-Dade to Jupiter, Florida, you’ll be able to find a Nick­laus Chil­dren’s lo­ca­tion near you.

In March 2015, the cam­paign took a ma­jor leap for­ward as Jack and Bar­bara Nick­laus be­came Chairs af­ter mak­ing a gen­er­ous pledge of $60 mil­lion through the Nick­laus Chil­dren’s Health Care Foun­da­tion to Mi­ami Chil­dren’s Health Sys­tem. Their sin­gu­lar act of phi­lan­thropy was rec­og­nized by re­brand­ing the hos­pi­tal as Nick­laus Chil­dren’s Hos­pi­tal, and they will lead the fundrais­ing ef­forts for the cam­paign to help reach the $150 mil­lion goal.

The To­gether For The Chil­dren cam­paign is trans­form­ing the way healthcare is ac­cessed, de­liv­ered and ex­pe­ri­enced. With in­no­va­tion as its mantra and the cam­paign’s sin­gu­lar ob­jec­tive of com­ing to­gether for the chil­dren, Nick­laus Chil­dren’s is ad­vanc­ing to­ward the fu­ture by think­ing big and achiev­ing the im­pos­si­ble. -This in­for­ma­tion pro­vided cour­tesy of Nick­laus Chil­dren’s Hos­pi­tal
