Why Choose UHealth?
World-class health care for children. Children and their families come from all over the world to receive top-quality care from our compassionate team of pediatric specialists. Your child will receive personalized attention from doctors who are sought out for their expertise.
Research leads to better treatments for your child. Our doctors not only treat patients – we are also closely involved with leading-edge research at one of the nation’s top medical schools, Miller School of Medicine. For example, we are currently involved in studying the long-term behavior of the Zika virus in order to learn what risks for hearing and development are associated with the virus.
Through these types of studies, we have access to innovative treatments and procedures, more quickly than other facilities. Our team uses the latest technologies and research findings to provide your child with superior, personalized care.
Pediatric mobile clinic brings health care to uninsured children. The University of Miami Pediatric Mobile Clinic (UMPMC) has been on the road to provide medical care to uninsured children since 1992. We provide well visits, sports physicals, immunizations, management of chronic conditions, urgent care, mental health, and social work services via our comprehensive telemedicine program.

HealthySteps program helps children meet milestones.

We are the only academic medical center in South Florida that has developmental and behavioral pediatric specialists on staff.
