Watch us grow
With your help, UF Health Shands Children’s Hospital will transform from a 12,632-square-foot facility into a 20,844-square-foot facility, providing neonatal caregivers as well as patients and family members with the type of environment needed to thrive during a difficult time in their lives.
Our focus will be on our patients and their families, through 16 additional beds to keep up with the ever-increasing demand for expert care, three more private family rooms, a sibling play area, dedicated breastfeeding areas, and an updated facility with a modern feel to provide the warmest, most comforting environment to each and every person who passes through the NICU’s doors. This will also enable parents to have more confidence as they transition from the hospital to home, where they will care for their baby full time.
UF Health Shands Children’s Hospital is committed to providing our community, the state of Florida and the Southeast with the most advanced NICU in the country to ensure our facilities match the expert care and support that we continue to deliver to our tiniest, most vulnerable patients. Please help us care for babies who need advantage for survival. By making a gift to the UF Health Shands Children’s Hospital NICU, you are investing deeply into our future.
