Since opening our doors in 1908, Florida Hospital has offered one of the most comprehensive children’s health programs in Central Florida. Today, we continue this legacy of pediatric excellence through Walt Disney Pavilion at Florida Hospital for Children. Each day we minister to our young patients and their families with this premise in mind: Each life is precious to God.
Our campus is home to 30 pediatric sub-specialties led by a team of 400+ nurses and physicians. We provide specialized care in various state-of-the-art settings, including an 81-bed Neonatal Intensive Care Unit with private family-centered rooms, an Advanced Center for Pediatric Surgery handling nearly 4,000 cases each year, and one of the few pediatric oncology programs in the area. We’re also Central Florida’s only pediatric provider for bone marrow transplant, kidney transplant, Gamma Knife services, trilogy radiation and Level III epilepsy care. But perhaps most exciting of all, is that this is the first—and only—hospital to bear the Disney name.
Magnet Recognition Status
In 2011, The American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) granted Florida Hospital for Children Magnet Recognition status, as part of its Magnet Recognition Program®, which honors hospitals for excellence in nursing. The Magnet designation makes Florida Hospital for Children the only children’s hospital in Central Florida to receive this prestigious recognition. Only seven percent of the nation’s hospitals have earned this distinction.
Every detail about our 164-bed pediatric hospital is designed to nurture the young spirit. From our 8-bed Pediatric Emergency Department to our 8-bed Pediatric Outpatient Unit, we provide the most advanced pediatric/neonatal care available, all within a warm, Disney-themed environment. This unique setting helps ease the stress and anxiety associated with a hospital stay. We also have specially trained therapists known as the Child Life Team to help children cope with hospitalization through education, play and music.
As the preferred provider for nearly half of all children in the tri-county area of Central Florida, job opportunities are growing within our innovative family-centered setting. Become part of our team as we continue to provide specialized pediatric health services by leveraging the expertise of highly educated case managers, social workers, child life specialists, nurses, therapists and board-certified physicians.
