Top Reasons to work at AdventHealth for Children
Since opening our doors in 1908, AdventHealth has offered one of the most comprehensive children’s health programs in Central Florida. Today, we continue this legacy of pediatric excellence at the Magnet® recognized Walt Disney Pavilion at AdventHealth for Children. Our campus is home to over 35 pediatric sub-specialties led by a team of 800+ nurses and physicians.
We provide specialized care in various state-of-the-art settings, including a 102-bed Neonatal Intensive Care Unit with private family-centered rooms, an Advanced Center for Pediatric Surgery and Open Heart Surgery, and one of the few pediatric oncology programs in the area.
We’re also Central Florida’s only pediatric provider for bone marrow transplant, kidney and liver transplants, Gamma Knife services, trilogy radiation and Level IV epilepsy care. But perhaps most exciting of all, is that this is the first—and only—hospital to bear the Disney® name.
Walt Disney Pavilion at Florida Hospital for Children is home to a 102-bed Level III Neonatal ICU (NICU), which is specially designed to provide holistic healing for critically ill babies and their families.
Our unit is equipped with the latest technologies and private rooms. We have a dedicated critical care transport team providing neonatal transports throughout Central Florida.
