In January 2010 we opened a new 259-bed hospital that features individual patient rooms with accommodations for two parents, 12 state-of-the-art operating suites, five playrooms, and an environment designed to promote healing.
Development of a New Residency Program
The practice of medicine is changing rapidly. Advances in pediatric medicine have the power to ultimately improve health across the lifespan. However, pediatric residency training has changed very little over the past half century. But that is about to change.
All Children's Hospital, Johns Hopkins Medicine is creating a new future for pediatric medical education by combining the best of the old and the new. Johns Hopkins is considered the birthplace of residency training and is respected worldwide as a leader in medical education and research. All Children's Hospital has an 86-year history of providing outstanding care for children from all across the state of Florida. In 2010, All Children's moved into one the nation's newest and most technologically advanced freestanding children's hospitals, providing care for children from throughout Florida in a 1-million square-foot, 259-bed hospital and adjoining outpatient facility. More than 250 physicians in 43 pediatric medical and surgical specialties provide outstanding care for children with acute and chronic illnesses, working collaboratively with some of the hospital's 2,800 employees to provide family-centered, evidence-based treatment.
We are uniting these strengths to shape an innovative new approach to pediatric training designed to prepare physicians for the evolving practice of 21st century pediatrics. Creating one of nation's best pediatric residency programs was a key reason for the integration of All Children's Hospital with Johns Hopkins Medicine. Our program will give residents opportunities to learn to provide great clinical care, learn to do great research, and to develop as leaders in pediatric medicine.
