Nicklaus Children’s Hospital logo unveiled

Originally founded as Variety Children’s Hospital in 1950, Miami Children’s Hospital today unveiled a logo featuring its new Nicklaus Children’s Hospital name, during a press conference with golf icon Jack Nicklaus and his wife, Barbara. The new name will be effective March 20, on the hospital’s 65th anniversary. In addition, the hospital’s eight outpatient centers will also assume the Nicklaus name.

“We are deeply honored that our name will be associated with a healthcare organization that so many know and trust throughout the world,” said Jack and Barbara Nicklaus in a joint statement. “Children are our region’s most precious and vulnerable resource. We have heeded a call to make a difference for all children in need and have found a worthy partner in Miami Children’s Health System. The organization shares our passion and commitment to care excellence. We are delighted that we are further united in our common purpose.”
