A Sanctuary of Home and Healing for Central Florida Children

Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children was dedicated in 1989 and just over 25 years later, it has earned a reputation as one of the leading hospitals of its kind in the Southeast and the nation. Today, Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children is a 158- bed, 362,000 square foot facility that uniquely meets the healthcare needs of children by providing a full spectrum of pediatric specialties and sub-specialties including trauma and emergency care, cardiology and heart surgery, craniomaxillofacial surgery, critical care, gastroenterology, nephrology, neurology, neurosciences, hematology/oncology, hospitalist services, orthopedics and sports medicine, pulmonology, genetics and palliative care, general surgery and community outreach services. Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children has recently expanded its transport service with the addition of a third vehicle for the pediatric acute care transport team.

A special pedestrian bridge links Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children to Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women & Babies. Together, these two hospitals form the Arnold Palmer Medical Center - the largest facility dedicated to children, women and babies in the United States.

Mr. Palmer famously said, “We can do better! We should do better for the children!” And that’s exactly what happened. An indication of the legacy of caring and continuous improvement is the consistent ranking by U.S. News & World Report as a “Best Children’s Hospital.”
