Miami Children’s Hospital and the Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation held a grand opening and community open house for the Miami Children’s Hospital Nicklaus Outpatient Center in Palm Beach Gardens. Patients and families enjoyed family fun entertainment, refreshments and tours of the facility, located at 11310 Legacy Ave. in Legacy Place.
The Miami Children’s Hospital Nicklaus Outpatient Center at Legacy Place provides medical services to meet the healthcare needs of children and adolescents from birth through 21 years of age. The center currently offers rehabilitation services, including physical, occupational and speech-language therapies, and outpatient pediatric imaging services (X-ray). Pediatric urgent care for minor injuries and illnesses are available from 3 to 10 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on weekends. Visits with pediatric subspecialists and MRI services will be available soon.
This 21,500-square-foot center is the second pediatric-care facility to open in Palm Beach County. In 2010, the Miami Children’s Hospital Nicklaus Care Center opened in Loxahatchee Groves as a collaboration between MCH and the Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation, reflecting a shared commitment to advancing pediatric care offerings in the region.
“When Jack and I were young parents, we quickly discovered the importance of accessible quality pediatric healthcare,” said Barbara Nicklaus, board chair of the Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation. “We always said that if we were ever in a position to help someone, our focus would be children.”
