One of the most respected names in pediatric care and the resources of one of South Florida’s largest children’s hospital is now available in Wellington, making it easier for children and families in Palm Beach county and beyond to access care for specific medical needs.

The Joe DiMaggio Children’s Health Specialty Center in Wellington opened Monday, February 18, with medical professionals in six specialties - endocrinology, pulmonology, otolaryngology, orthopedics, general surgery, and neurology - welcoming patients. Comprehensive imaging (MRI and ultrasound), outpatient surgery, and rehabilitation services are also available at the more than 30,000 square foot, freestanding building.

The facility is one of three locations in Palm Beach County connected to Memorial Healthcare System that provide specialized pediatric care. The other two are Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital physician offices in Boca Raton.

“We’re proud to have earned a reputation for high quality, patient and family-centered care, with that level of service now available to families in Wellington,” said Caitlin Beck Stella, MPH, CEO of Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital. “At the Joe DiMaggio Children’s Health Specialty Center in Wellington, we’re an extension of the care area pediatricians provide, often working in collaboration with them to improve the health of local children.”

Stella says the specialty center features online scheduling and the same kid-friendly décor and “Power of Play” philosophy as Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital, the 226-bed hospital in Hollywood. The children’s hospital was the first pediatric facility in the world to receive Planetree’s Person-Centered Organization designation.

An “Open House” for the community to tour the specialty center and meet its staff is set for Saturday, March 16. Joe DiMaggio Children’s Health Specialty Center in Wellington is located at 3377 S. State Road 7, on 441 between Lake Worth Road and Forest Hill Boulevard, and can be reached at (561) 341-7000.
