Specialties and Programs
When a child’s health hangs in the balance, minutes count. A leader in neonatal and pediatric intensive care, Disney Children’s Hospital has a team of doctors, nurses and support staff ready to spring into action to provide critical care to infants and children. Our state-of-the-art Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) are some of the very best in the nation, backed by our legendary service and commitment to your child’s health and healing.
"Diabetes"As one of the top hospitals for treating diabetes in children, Disney Children’s Hospital can provide your child with early diagnosis, advanced treatment and a loving, caring environment that promotes good health and happiness. Whether your child has type 1 or type 2 diabetes, has pre-diabetes, or has thyroid or endocrine disease, we’re there for your child with the very best diagnostics, treatments and education in the region.
"Kids Emergency Department"The Disney name is synonymous with child-friendly experiences and the emergency department at Disney Children’s Hospital is no exception. Everything is geared toward the child, from the friendly physicians, nurses and support staff to the child-sized seating, beds and equipment. Our goal is to put your child at ease so they can receive the urgent care they need in a safe, familiar and even fun environment. We definitely aren’t your average emergency room at Disney Children’s Hospital.
"Minimally Invasive Surgery"Thanks to advances in medicine, many surgeries can be performed on children through an opening no bigger than a dime, and in many cases even smaller. Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) uses laparoscopic devices and remotely controlled instruments to perform surgery. Instead of making large incisions as in the past, highly trained surgeons insert two small tubes into these openings. One carries a fiber optic camera with a light source while the other has miniaturized instruments. Thanks to MIS, very precise procedures can be conducted through very small holes, often requiring just a stitch or two to close. For years, Disney Children’s Hospital has been at the leading edge of developing Minimally Invasive Surgery techniques for children.
"NICU"When a baby comes into the world, there are times when they need an extra helping hand. The first few hours are critical to ensure that your baby will grow into a strong and healthy child. Our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit is here in those times of need. The neonatal specialists at Disney Children’s Hospital are some of the best in nation, working closely with other caregivers to ensure that your baby gets the best care possible.
"Pediatric Cancer"New advances in treating cancer and blood diseases are being developed every day and Disney Children’s Hospital at Florida Hospital offers the most current clinical trial options available. Our skilled team treats many of the leading diseases in children, including bleeding and coagulation disorders, brain tumors, hemophilia, leukemia, lymphoma, sickle cell anemia, thalassemias and solid tumors.

We have our own laboratory, complete with a lab technician in-house, to quickly turn around blood examinations and counts so you don’t have to wait any longer than necessary for the results.
"Gastroenterology"If your child has a digestive system, liver, or nutritional problem, a Pediatric Gastroenterologist has the expertise to treat your child. Digestive, liver, and nutritional problems in children often are quite different from those seen in adults.
Pediatric gastroenterologists treat children from the newborn period through the teen years. They choose to make pediatric care the core of their medical practice, which provides extensive experience specifically in the care of infants, children, and teens.
"Pediatric Neurology, Neurosurgery & Epilepsy"Neurological disorders in children can be very different from those in adults. That’s why Disney Children’s Hospital at Florida Hospital has a team that is dedicated to nothing but treating acute neurological problems such as epilepsy, tumors and neurofibromatosis. Professional, highly talented and experienced, our Pediatric Neurosurgery team is on call 24 hours, seven days a week for urgent and emergent problems.
The vascular structure of a child is very complex, not only because it is still developing but also because it is so small. As such, children can be prone to diseases that require exceptional pediatric surgical experience to treat effectively. Left unchecked, vascular diseases can lead to a general mental decline and the potential of multiple strokes because of a narrowing of the arteries. Our experienced team of neurosurgeons utilizes a number of surgical options to treat narrow or malformed vascular structures so that normal flow can be restored.
"Pediatric Transplant Program"Children suffering from afflictions affecting the blood, specific cancers and kidney failure often face the prospect of a transplant. With the region’s most experienced pediatric transplant program, Disney Children’s Hospital at Florida Hospital is the trusted expert in transplants for children.
