Nicklaus Children’s Hospital

Nicklaus Children’s Hospital was founded in 1950. It opened its doors as Variety Children’s Hospital as the polio epidemic was spreading across the U.S. The hospital soon focused on treating children with polio, and over the years, it services grew. In 1983, the hospital was renamed Miami Children’s Hospital. Then, in 2001, the hospital campus was renovated and expanded. In 2015, when the hospital turned 65 years old, it was renamed Nicklaus Children’s Hospital after receiving a pledge from the Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation.

Now, Nicklaus Hospital has 289 beds, 650 attending physicians, and more than 130 pediatric sub-specialties. The hospital offers primary care, emergency care, and dental care for children throughout Florida. It has been verified as a Level 1 Pediatric Trauma Center by the American College of Surgeons. Each year, it contributes between $16 and $20 million in uncompensated care.

The hospital has been awarded many distinctions over the years. For 2018-19, U.S. News ranked Nicklaus Children’s Hospital nationally in six children’s specialties: neonatology, pediatric cardiology and heart surgery, pediatric neurology and neurosurgery, pediatric orthopedics, pediatric pulmonology and lung surgery, and pediatric urology.

Mr Nick Gerson has been extremely attentive (even on weekends!) and has been more than willing to take time to answer all my questions. His receptionist (Suzanne) and paralegal (Carla) are courteous, friendly and highly efficient in all matters. Mr Gerson's diligence lead to a very quick resolution of my case. I am more than pleased to recommend you seek him as your attorney. You will not regret you did!! G.I.B.
Mr. Gerson and all his team gave to my case the careful and professional attention it needed from the beginning to end. Unfortunately, a year ago I was involved in a car accident on the victim side. I have appreciation for the good service that was given to me and my situation. Thanks. Cales & Mr. Hyde (Carlos Andrés García Jiménez), Google User
