Celebrating 30 Years of Care

Arnold and Winnie Palmer had a passion for providing unmatched care for children. Their philosophy was that we always can and always should do better for the children we serve. Out of that passion, Orlando’s first children’s hospital was born on September 10, 1989. For 30 years now, Orlando Health Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children has delivered hope, healing and compassion to kids throughout Central Florida. And each day, we strive to be even better for them. Our teams are committed to providing the best pediatric care in all areas of expertise, so when kids get back to being kids, they can play, laugh, smile and find joy.
