Do You Know a Healthcare Game Changer?
Nicklaus Children's Hospital Opens Special Delivery Unit for High-Risk Infants  
Nicklaus Children's Hospital's Fetal Care Center recently unveiled its new special delivery unit for high-risk infants. This specialized birthing unit - one of only a few such units nationwide - serves healthy mothers expecting an infant diagnosed with complex medical needs requiring advanced pediatric care immediately after birth. The unit enables families to stay together through birth, maternal recovery and specialized infant care.

The new unit, located on the hospital's main campus in Miami, includes five labor and delivery rooms, five antepartum rooms, and two operating rooms. The hospital works with community obstetricians to coordinate a plan of care for the infant before, during and after delivery. Newborns have immediate access to the hospital's Beacon-Award recognized critical care units (Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, Cardiac Intensive Care Unit and Neonatal Intensive Care Unit), as well as other specialized programs within the hospital's pediatric network.

Among those who attended the grand opening celebration were Jack and Barbara Nicklaus, hospital namesakes and longstanding supporters; Mr. Larry De George and his wife Lorena De George, and Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez.
