Pediatric Care

Miami pediatricians at Kendall Regional Medical Center

When you choose our hospital for your child’s care, you can take comfort that you are choosing not only some of the most trusted pediatricians in Miami, but all of Miami-Dade County. Our pediatric specialists understand that children aren’t just little adults, they are children who have unique emotional needs.

From treatment to hospitalization and release, you can count on our pediatric team to care for your child the sensitivity and respect.

Hospitalization for children done right

We understand hospitals can be scary places for children, which is why our pediatric department is designed with child-friendly amenities that include cable TV, DVD players, a playroom with video games, nourishment room and treatment room. The 12-bed pediatric unit focuses on providing family-centered care, including personalized attention and treatment plans for every child.

Our pediatricians and pediatric caregivers are trained in pediatric advanced life support and focus on providing a safe and warm environment to ensure a maximum return of health. The pediatric healthcare team in the hospital is a large one, made up of numerous individuals with differing roles including:

  • Pediatric Intensivist
  • Consulting specialist doctors
  • Registered Nurses (RNs)
  • Social Workers (MSWs)
  • Nutritionists
  • Respiratory Therapists
  • Physical Therapists
  • Clinical Pharmacist

If your child needs to be hospitalized after a visit to our pediatric ER, our staff works hard to ensure a smooth transition of care.

Pediatric intensive care (PICU)

Our PICU is staffed by a team of high-level healthcare professionals and features the latest equipment for the most critically ill young patients.

Pediatric advisory council

At Kendall Regional Medical Center, our pediatricians and management recognize that kids aren’t just little adults, so we engaged kids from the Miami-Dade community to advise us on what excellence in pediatric care should look like. From food choices to video games preferences, this group of kids gave us their expert opinions on why Kendall Regional Medical Center is their choice for pediatric care in Miami.

This is just another way we are trying to continually improve our pediatric care program.
