Member Hospitals provide the care for almost 60% of all pediatric Medicaid patient days and over 58% of pediatric patient days in Florida. The vast majority of chronically ill children in the state of Florida are cared for by these children’s hospitals.

In 1999, the Association was organized to enhance and improve children’s healthcare in Florida.  This collaborative effort of children’s hospitals seeks to accomplish this mission by focusing on the following areas:

•    Patient Care – by sharing knowledge of efficiencies, methods and new technologies

•    Education – by promotion of educational efforts for physicians, allied healthcare professionals, families and patients

•    Research – by promoting and sharing efforts in state, national, and international participation in clinical and basic programs

•    Child Advocacy – by providing a voice for our young citizens to ensure their health and well being throughout the state of Florida



Through the sharing and dissemination of knowledge,
information, experiences, and research, the FACH encourages the development of the most effective means of delivering comprehensive healthcare to the children of Florida.
