This new state-of-the-art, academic, free-standing children's hospital aims to set a new standard for patient and family experience in central Florida, with up to 137 inpatient beds (over 250 inpatient beds in phase 2). The vision and mandate is for Nemours Children's Hospital to differentiate itself in Central Florida and Southeastern United States through a combination of outstanding family experience, top-tier pediatric care, multi-disciplinary tertiary programs, and cutting-edge basic, clinical and translational research, to become a leading pediatric referral center for Florida, and a national and international destination.
