Flores Joins Staff At Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital In Wellington

Dr. Mauricio Flores

Dr. Mauricio Flores, a board-certified pediatric endocrinologist, will soon be seeing patients at the new Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital specialty care center in Wellington. Flores — who specializes in, but isn’t limited to, treating thyroid disorders, diabetes, short stature, metabolic syndrome, pubertal and lipid disorders — had been providing care at JDCH offices in Boca Raton and Hollywood.

Flores is one of the first physicians at the new facility, which is expected to open in February 2019.

The 30,000-square-foot, freestanding building will house medical professionals in six pediatric specialties: endocrinology, pulmonology, otolaryngology, orthopedics, general surgery and neurology. It will also include comprehensive imaging (MRI and ultrasound), an outpatient surgery center and pediatric rehabilitation services.

The bilingual Flores joined Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital and Memorial Healthcare System in 2018. Prior to that, he was medical director of pediatric endocrinology and diabetes at Driscoll Children’s Hospital in Texas.

The pediatric specialty center is located at 3377 N. State Road 7 between Lake Worth Road and Forest Hill Blvd. in Wellington.
