Child Development Center


Baptist Health offers child development services at two locations: Baptist Children's Hospital's Child Development Center, located at 9035 Sunset Drive; and South Miami Hospital's Child Development Center​ at 5975 Sunset Drive, Suite 100.

Child Development Center
Sometimes children need special help in reaching their full potential or recovering from an injury or illness. The staff of the Baptist Children's Hospital Child Development Center provides that help, offering outpatient therapeutic and developmental rehabilitation support for the tiniest infants to children through age 12.
Physical, occupational and speech therapists from Baptist Children's Hospital work with disabled and developmentally delayed infants and children, including those with autism, Down Syndrome and cerebral palsy. They also treat children with orthopedic or brain injuries, and those with speech, feeding or swallowing problems. Social workers assist the family and patients with their special needs.
The Center was created especially for children. Children won't even realize they are in a medical setting, with therapy offered in a kid-friendly park decor. The Center was made possible thanks to a generous donation from philanthropist Martha Ware and the Ware Foundation.
The Child Development Center offers free parking. Appointments are available Monday-Thursday, 8 a.m.-6:30 p.m., and on Friday, 8 a.m.-12 noon. A physician's prescription is required. For appointments, or for more information, call 786-596-PEDS (7337).
