"Children are the root of the heart"
Community at the Core
Golf icon Jack Nicklaus authored countless success stories during his remarkable career. But what truly marks his greatness is the decision he made decades ago to use his success in the game as a platform and vehicle to help so many others. “As Barbara and I look back on our careers and our lives together,” he reflected, “we realize and appreciate that golf has contributed to us having a lifetime of fulfillment, enrichment and happiness. We made a commitment that once we were in a position to help and give back to others, we would. We have always focused most of our efforts on children.”
The Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation
Jack and Barbara founded the Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation in 2004, in an effort to provide families access to world-class pediatric health care in their own communities.
Collaborating with Nicklaus Children’s Hospital and pediatric hospitals across the country, the Foundation has grown from a vision to a reality, supporting innovative programs focused on the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of childhood illnesses. “To us, there is no higher calling than to help children in need of medical care, hope and healing,” say Jack and Barbara Nicklaus.
Nicklaus Children’s Hospital
March 20, 2015, in honor and recognition of a $60 million pledge from the Nicklaus Children's Health Care Foundation, Miami Children's Hospital and its network of outpatient centers were renamed Nicklaus Children's Hospital. In November of 2017, the Health System became Nicklaus Children's Health System to align with the Nicklaus Children's Hospital brand.
